Cox Conserves Heroes
Each year, the Cox Conserves Heroes program recognizes individuals who volunteer to create, preserve or enhance outdoor places in local communities. Since 2007, we have honored nearly 200 volunteers nationwide.
The program takes place in locations across the country where there is a Cox property and a Trust for Public Land presence. Individuals are publicly nominated, and a panel of local civic leaders within the environmental field narrows the finalists to the top three. Then the public is invited to choose the winner by voting online. In each market, the winner and finalists receive donations that go to their local environmental nonprofits of choice, with the winner’s designated organization receiving $10,000.
