Communities in Action

Our ecosystems shouldn't just be beautiful, they should be thriving.

We have the power to inspire individuals from diverse backgrounds to take action for the wellbeing of our environment. When our ecosystems thrive, we all thrive.

We are proud to partner with community members to take action through various initiatives. Beautification projects can open the eyes of a child to the wonder of the natural world around them. Litter cleanups ensure that cigarette butts and other human waste stay out of the bodies of our wildlife (and our drinking water, too!). Recycling nontraditional items means that less and less waste is ending up in the Earth. The potential is endless, and this program seeks to create that spark of action and advocacy in our communities.

"When we know better, we do better." - Maya Angelou

Maya Angelou reminds us that we are always learning. We are always seeking out new information, new ways to operate, new solutions to our problems, and more.

At Waterway Advocates, we seek to instill this growth mindset within our constituents. Community connections provide valuable insight, enabling us to develop meaningful educational content. Video shorts captivate scrollers across social media. Workbooks inspire the next generation to develop a deeper appreciation for nature. We encourage active discovery and engagement throughout the learning process. Through these efforts, we not only foster healthier habitats, but a society that understands, respects, and advocates for its ecosystems.
