Our environmental reporters want to know who's the hero in caring for the environment in your community. Is it the woman who lobbies for more trees on campus -- and then finds the donations to make it happen? Is it the surfer who takes a few minutes each beach visit to clean up the shoreline?
A million small volunteer actions can make a difference in the health of a neighborhood or city. Look around, and nominate the hero on your block. We'll profile some of the best heros on our environmental blog.
