The Cox Conserves Heroes program honors environmental volunteers who create, preserve or enhance shared outdoor spaces in their local communities. One California Cox Conserve Hero will designate a $10,000 grant to the environmental nonprofit of their choice, given by the James M. Cox Foundation, the Cox-affiliated foundation. The James M. Cox Foundation will also award $50,000 to the national winner’s nonprofit of choice. Nominate a volunteer today at coxconservesheroes.com through July 31. Nominees must meet the following eligibility criteria: • Their activity creates, protects and/or beautifies an outdoor community space. • Their activity is done on a volunteer basis and is not part of paid employment. • Their activity inspires others to engage in community conservation. In California, the Cox Conserves Heroes program is presented by Cox Communications in partnership with The Trust for Public Land. Over the past 11 years, the Cox Conserves Heroes program has contributed nearly $1M to environmental nonprofits and honored more than 200 volunteers across the country.
