The Conservation Community Service Program is designed to enable members to gain an understanding of and appreciation for all aspects of our environment and the world’s resources, natural and man-made.
Our nation is faced with a continuing crisis in natural resource conservation. Water and air quality is severely impaired by the effects of pollution and general misuse. Wildlife is threatened by loss of habitat, invasive species, and pollution of the environment with waste materials. Every 20 minutes, the world loses one or more entire species of animal or plant life—at least 27,000 species per year. It is imperative that we learn and pass on to the youth the ideals of living in a healthy environment and the importance of conservation practices for the future of the world as they will be the future stewards of the environment. We have a responsibility to ensure the preservation, protection, or restoration of the natural environment, natural ecosystems, vegetation, and wildlife along with the prevention of excessive or wasteful use of our resources.
GFWC has historically spearheaded unique programs that have enhanced and benefited youth and adults in communities around the world. We will continue this work by increasing the awareness of conservation issues among our members and our communities as we work together in a collaborative effort with other community organizations or use GFWC Partners or Resources designated for this program.
With our shared knowledge, continued dedication to this program, and the new collaboration and partnership emphasis, GFWC will continue to be a viable resource in conservation for enhancing the environment for healthier living and preserving our resources worldwide.
