What is TogetherGreen?

It's all about helping you get involved in creating a brighter, healthier future. Its a dynamic and innovative Audubon program funded by Toyota that aims to provide inspiration, leadership and opportunities that inspire people everywhere to take action at home, in their communities and beyond to improve the health of our environment.

Visit the National TogetherGreen Web Site

TogetherGreen will:

  • Connect all kinds of people across America with the nature and resources that surround and sustain us, hopefully inspiring concern and conservation action;
  • Fund and support innovative conservation projects, leadership development and volunteerism to engage people in land, water, and energy conservation;
  • Work to produce and report real results for the health of our communities and our planet.

Announced on March 26, 2008 TogetherGreen also represents an important alliance between Audubon and Toyota. Its built on our shared belief that we must all work together if we hope to confront the tremendous environmental challenges and opportunities of today and the years ahead. Together, we can make a difference. We invite everyone to get involved through TogetherGreen. Act Today. Shape Tomorrow.

Tulsa Audubon and TogetherGreen

Tulsa Audubon is one of about 60 Audubon entities chosen to participate in TogetherGreen which includes a grant to help fund program. TAS is one of just a few 100% volunteer run chapters to be selected, without the staff that Audubon Centers and some larger chapters have available. That makes this program is especially important for TAS.

The TAS Board has selected seven projects as our TogetherGreen commitment. Some of these are new projects and others are existing programs we will enhance through TogetherGreen:
