What we Do

"Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does."
— William James

Nature in the City

Cities are ecological places, as well as places for economic and social interaction. Nature provides critical environmental services, habitats for wildlife and wonderful places for outdoor recreation.

We encourage everyone to take part in nurturing San Miguel as a place where nature and people exist in harmony.

People need nature…

Nature in the City is a program that encourages everyone to take part in nurturing  habitats for both wildlife and people in the places where we live, work and play.

  • Let’s make cleaning up our waterways a priority so they can return to healthy habitats for people and wildlife.
  • Let’s improve our parks, preserve open spaces, and provide natural areas where children can make positive connections with nature that will instill within them a desire to care for it.
  • Let’s nurture wildlife in our city by planting trees and flowering plants that attract birds and pollinators; using alternatives to pesticides; hanging bird feeders; and acting in other mindful ways.

 

And nature needs People

Let’s help San Miguel become a place where nature and people flourish
side by side.

In return nature will reward us with reliency against climate change and water scarcity, beautiful spaces for recreation and relaxation; a greater diversity and abundancy of birds, butterflies and other wildlife; cleaner water and air;  and improved community health.
