Sustainable Communities Program: Stage 1 Survey

Page 1 of 2

Practicing good environmental stewardship daily is a vital way to make a positive contribution to the environment where you live. Henrietta is a member of the Audubon International Sustainable Communities Program (SCP), which is helping take existing sustainability projects a step further to create a long-term, comprehensive sustainability program for the community. For the SCP certification process, Henrietta is preparing to develop a community-wide plan, with community input, to implement best practices across a range of focus areas.

This survey is a first opportunity for you to give input into that process. Please check which actions you regularly take to support community efforts that enhance and protect the environment for present and future generations.
