Welcome to California's Cox Conserves Heroes Program

Cox Communications, in partnership with The Trust for Public Land (TPL), is proud to bring you California's Cox Conserves Heroes program. 

Congrats to Robert (Bob) Byrnes for being named California's 2017 Cox Conserves Hero. His nonprofit of choice, California Native Plant Society, will receive $10,000.

The two finalists each will receive $5,000 for their nonprofits of choice. Maria Martinez selected Envrionmental Health Coalition as her nonprofit of choice; Azarel Garcia chose Living Coast Discovery Center .

What is Cox Conserves Heroes?

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

The national program takes place in cities across the country. The public nominates volunteers using a brief online form. Next, a panel of local environmental leaders selects three finalists who are profiled on video. The public then watches the videos, get inspired, and votes for their favorite.

It's our way of honoring the unsung heroes in our communities and supporting the organizations that matter to them.
