What kind of environment group activities would you like to do?

renewable energy, river & ocean, composting, recycling, gardening

What environmental issues are you most concerned with?

Our health and the health of our surface and ground water eco-systems depends on our switch to renewable energy sources. We need to work toward a world-wide consciousness shift away from blind consumerism and it's subsequent waste creation and pollution.

What triggered your interest/passion in the environment?

I always felt a connection with nature and animals. I was lucky to grow up at the beach and also spent a lot of time in the mountains and desert. But the "activist" trigger happened as I traveled in my 20's and I experienced beaches covered in plastic waste.
