Welcome to Virginia's Cox Conserves Heroes

***Nominate an environmental volunteer***


Cox Communications and The Trust for Public Land are proud to present Virginia's 7th annual Cox Conserves Heroes program. Nominations are currently open for the 2017 awards through April 10.  

About the Cox Conserves Heroes awards

Created in partnership with The Trust for Public Land, Cox Conserves Heroes recognizes local environmental volunteers across the country and makes donations to local nonprofits on their behalf.

The public nominates volunteers using a brief online form. Next, a panel of local civic and environmental leaders selects three finalists to be profiled on video. The videos are shared online with the public, who then vote for the nominee they feel most deserving of the award.

The awards programs is our way of honoring the unsung heroes in our communities and supporting the local organizations doing the important work of bettering our environment. We hope others will be inspired to get involved in community conservation.
