Improving Quality of Life by Bringing Nature Into the City
A $200,000 grant from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation and Wells Fargo will improve water quality, increase tree canopy and create local jobs in Albuquerque. The three-part project is an integral piece of The Nature Conservancy’s Urban Conservation Program designed to bring more nature into the city to improve quality of life.
“With the help of Wells Fargo, we’re able to support efforts such as The Nature Conservancy’s urban program,” says Carrie Clingan, National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, Program Director, Community Stewardship and Youth. “Adding trees to neighborhoods with poor air quality—and getting the community involved in that effort—will benefit both people and wildlife.”
