Welcome to Louisiana's Cox Conserves Heroes Program

 

Cox Communications, in partnership with The Trust for Public Land, is proud to bring you Louisiana's 2016 Cox Conserves Heroes program. 

Congrats to Rory McCracken for being named Louisiana's 2016 Cox Conserves Hero. His nonprofit of choice, Reef Environmental Education Foundation, will receive $10,000.

The finalists each received $5,000 for their nonprofits of choice. Barrett Kennedy selected the Teche Project and Libby Nehrbass chose Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana.

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, gets 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.
