EAI staff recently attended the 37th Annual Environmental Permitting Summer School in Marco Island, FL. As part of our sustainability initiative, instead of handing out the typical conference swag, we decided to have attendees vote at our booth for what local non-profit should receive a $250 donation from EAI. Since our focus at the conference was Water Quality, we established voting between two Florida non-profits that had a focus on water. After tallying the votes, the winner was CREW Land & Water Trust! The CREW Land & Water Trust is a private, non-profit conservation organization dedicated to the preservation and stewardship of the water resources and natural communities in and around the Corkscrew Regional Ecosystem Watershed (CREW). Learn more about the amazing work they are doing at crewtrust.org.
