Environment

 

The GFWC Environment Community Service Program encourages us to become stewards of the earth by working to preserve the world's resources, protect wildlife and domesticated animals, live sustainably, and beautify our communities and enjoy nature.  Environmental degradation is cumulative and many scientists warn that we are at a tipping point.  There is no time like the present to act.

 

Here are some of the ways in which we promote care of our environment:

  • Participate in the Cape Henlopen Hawk Watch​

  • Support The Delaware Humane Association and the Brandywine Valley 
    SPCA with monetary donations and collection drives for pet food, gently 
    used towels and blankets, leashes, collars, food dishes and toys

  • Collect athletic shoes for the Nike recycle program for playground surfaces

  • Assist the Friends of Cape Henlopen State Park with activities and clean up projects

  • Support for MERR (Marine Education Research and Rehabilitation Institute

 

  • Field trips to the Delaware Botanic Gardens at Pepper Creek

  • Upcoming Tree planting at the new Shield's Elementary School
