Support Conservation Nebraska on Give to Lincoln Day!
May 30, 2019
Conservation Nebraska promotes a healthy political system by bringing together people who have diverse political views, but for whom conservation is a uniting force. This year, our goal is to raise $5,000 on Give to Lincoln Day to bring conservation education to every corner of the state. See our program descriptions below.
COMMON GROUND: As of today, Common Ground has 20 AmeriCorps members on the ground serving in 25 communities across Nebraska, hosting conservation education events, canvassing the public to learn about their deepest community concerns, and implementing local projects that will improve community vitality. We have found Nebraskans united in their love for the outdoors and concern about the political division in our country. Our goal is to translate their concerns into a shared conservation ethic that will overcome political division and protect our natural resources for years to come.
CLEAN ENERGY FOR ALL: With new clean energy majorities governing Nebraska’s three main electric utilities, Nebraska is at a critical juncture for finally embracing its clean energy potential. In the coming years we will be advocating for 100% clean energy in Nebraska, garnering public support for these robust clean energy policies to ensure clean, pollution-free communities for Nebraska.
NEBRASKA CONSERVATION SUMMIT: Every year, we provide Nebraskans with research and updates of current events that affect environmental conservation in our state. By inviting Nebraskans to come together for the sake of identifying climate solutions that work for our state, we are turning Nebraska values into conservation priorities.
