Miami, FL (June 27, 2006)- Citizens for a Better South Florida was founded in 1988 as one of the first multi-lingual environmental education organizations in the United States. Their mission is to improve our quality of life through instilling environmental awareness within South Florida’s diverse multi-lingual communities.
Over the past fifteen years, Citizens has designed experiential, multi-lingual education and outreach programs for students, teachers and community organizations, including activities such as community festivals, environmental field trips, curriculum development and trainings, tree plantings, workshops, in-class visits, and habitat restoration.
Citizens is a nonprofit, non-advocacy, community-based environmental education organization. Their work and accomplishments in the South Florida community are a direct reflection of all the partners who share their resources with them.
Citizens currently has three core projects: the Community Science Workshop, the Biscayne Bay Volunteer Program, and an Urban Greening Program.
