To empower our community to conserve natural resources
A thriving community that understands the finite nature of natural resources and acts to conserve them education, example, and involvement.
Statement of Need
The residents of Chatham County are committed to leaving the legacy of a healthy, sustainable community, society, and planet to future generations. Unfortunately, most people within our community are uncertain about how to turn that desire into action in practical and effective ways. Of those who have the knowledge, many fear that deprivation and discomfort are among the costs of taking action. The Resource Conservation Education Center addresses this need by providing individuals with direction to find the answers, the products, and the services that make sustainable choices not just manageable, but comfortable and profitable.
- Global impact via local action
- Individual engagement is the cornerstone of conservation
- Stewardship of the organization’s resources
- Practice what we preach
