Greening of the AEC


2nd Annual Volunteer Community Event

[ILLUSTRATION OMITTED]

For a second year, NEHA organized a community volunteer event at the 2012 AEC to support NEHA's sustainable efforts, reduce its carbon footprint, and give back to the AEC host city. Seventeen participants worked with Park Ranger Carole to clear 80 yards of brush in San Diego's beautiful and historic Balboa Park that will be reused as mulch. Volunteers got to enjoy the outdoors, great camaraderie with their fellow NEHA volunteers, and giving back to the community. Ralph's Supermarket donated $25 in gift certificates and all volunteers received a NEHA water bottle. Upholding the principles of sustainability, volunteers also walked, rode the bus, took the trolley, or carpooled with a hybrid car to and from the event. Thank you to all of the volunteers for their hard work! Below is a list of volunteers.
