Community Education

The purpose of CFC's Community Education Committee is to inspire and equip local residents to lead environmentally friendly lives. We are a community resource helping homeowners to make simple changes in daily activities that will allow them to exist seamlessly in a healthy natural environment. We are especially involved in home landscaping. Community Education develops and delivers programs and materials that involve many aspects of connecting people with nature.
