    Congratulations! I'm glad to see you are actively involved in environmental issues.

    College days are long gone, but I am involved in NASC (North American Sarracenia Conservancy).

    Since you are in NC, perhaps you could do some kind of work involving the Green Swamp and/or Sarracenia since Sarras are native to coastal NC.

    Or...you could have trash events...go help clean up some local parks. Most parks are underfunded and any kind of helpful hand that can be given for trash pick-up, brush trimming, boardwalk repair, etc. would be very appreciated I'm sure.

    Then there are recycling drives and recycling awareness events...

    There are endless ways to get involved in helping out our struggling planet.

    Oh...and also you could let your feelings be known on the controversy regarding the use of Marine Sonar off the coast of NC which can kill whales.

    Well as of right now we do clean "our" creek about twice a semester..but right now we are passing a "green fee" which I do think it has already gone through and will be started in the fall. Also we are fighting a new coal plant that Duke Energy is building at Cliffside, NC....we just got news yesterday that they have got there permit.

    As PAK said, since you're in NC you can do a project with the habitat destruction in the coastal region of NC. I'm the conservation officer for NASC and we'll be glad to help in any way we can. I'll be glad to lead a tour for you.
