Bridging The Gap trains and engages citizens in actions that create and maintain a more sustainable place to live, work and play. We educate citizens about the interconnectedness of environment, economy and community thus empowering the Kansas City region to contend with the serious environmental threats we struggle against.
Heartland Tree Alliance engages citizens to act and advocate for a healthy urban forest. We teach about the many benefits of trees in urban areas, such as how they improve our air, help manage stormwater, increase property values and reduce energy use. We stress how proper tree selection, planting and care is critical to helping urban trees thrive. We teach in many ways including speaking engagements, TreeKeepers courses and volunteer workdays to plant and care for trees on public lands. Kansas City WildLands represents a coalition of 30 partner organizations who collaborate to conserve, protect, and restore Kansas City’s biological heritage by involving citizens in stewardship of public land. We coordinate volunteer workdays to remove invasive plants from remnant natural communities across the region, as well as re-introduce and nurture indigenous species. Our unique approach to conservation results in healthy wild areas and citizens who appreciate and use these beautiful places.

Metro Kansas City has benefited from the many sustainability programs of Bridging the Gap for over 20 years. From managing recycling for KCMO to planting desirable trees or removing undesirable ones from wildlands, members are willing to get their hands dirty. They also provide environmental education to students, adults and businesses through several affiliates such as the Environmental Excellence in Business Network which supports Byproduct Synergy collaboration.
