Civic Engagement

July 14, 2017

Through our civic engagement campaigns and programs, the NYLCV Education Fund seeks to empower citizens to be effective advocates for the environment. These programs target discrete communities across New York State and utilize a variety of outreach strategies to encourage citizens to learn about and take action on local conservation issues. During elections, these campaigns provide education about candidates and issues and encourage environmentalists to vote.
