Fred's Facts

Thank You TogetherGreen!

Thank you TogetherGreen for support of Olmsted Parks Conservancy events celebrating Earth Day! Audubon and Toyota launched TogetherGreen in 2008 to build the promise of a greener, healthier future through innovation, leadership and volunteerism. With this support, the Conservancy was able to host several projects and provide more opportunities for our volunteers to help restore the health and integrity of the natural areas in the Frederick Law Olmsted Parks. Many thanks to all the individuals and groups who came out to celebrate Earth Day and volunteer with us, and thank you TogetherGreen for your support of our work!
