Civic Participation Action Plan

Citizens at a community meeting "Let us not be content to wait and see what will happen, but give us the determination to make the right things happen."
Peter Marshall

This section will provide you with some ideas about getting people together and getting things done! Topics include recycling, environmental justice, partnership building, and volunteer monitoring.
