Mission: Common Ground for Conservation is a non profit 501 (c) (3) aimed at helping people develop the attitudes, skills and knowledge to make informed decisions for the benefit of themselves and others, now and in the future, and to act upon these decisions to protect the human health and the environment through education, leadership and volunteerism.
Target demographics: Our programs are breaking down language barriers of the Hispanic community by providing literacy in Spanish, understandable and adapted to their own idiosyncrasy, so that they can better understand the American culture, and become fully participating members of our society by conserving the natural resources and supporting their distinctive heritages and creative capacities.

I love the work Common Ground For Conservation is providing to the environment and the community. I especially enjoy the programs, events and promotions the organization creates to help us understand our impact on the environment. We all can make simple adjustments to diminish and reduce our carbon foot print. Programs spear headed by Mildred Real, CEO of CGC have inspired me to motivate my peers to think about conservation. I am happy to be a volunteer and be affiliated with this cause to help our environment. Common Ground For Conservation is a voice to keep our planet GREEN!

I see the work and important message Mildred Real, CEO of Common Ground Conservation has voiced through Florida and in Washington DC to improve our understanding of conservation.

If I had the opportunity to make changes, I would ask large corporations to support CGC through large donations. Help CGC be part of their corporate solutions to community programs in their state.

I have several years to know this organization and have seen the efforts of its two main drivers: Carlos Gomez and Mildred Real. I've been called to participate in several opportunities in which they wanted to achieve a goal and I am proud to have been associated with this organization, dedicated to promoting environmental conservation and natural resources. CGC has the difficult task of keeping us informed, to take forward the integration of community and support all programs that support education with great dedication, respect to events that affect natural resources and have achieved their goals: the community Hispanic involvement in this difficult task to assemble and keep us interested in this vital issue.
All activities proposed in this organization have been a total success and have marked the community in a positive way.

I've volunteered for Common Ground for Conservation since early 2009 and truthfully, I could not be more grateful for having the opportunity to help the natural environment while simultaneously learning about its wonders, wilderness and current challenges. Mildred Real is sincerely concerned with environmental issues of today, and this organization is doing its best to raise awareness about pollution, sustainability and the development of alternative, renewable energy resources. Volunteering for CGC has been amazing; one could not go home without being taught something about our surroundings and having that great feeling of doing good after a volunteering event. Adults and kids of all ages can benefit from and be able to give back to nature in an enjoyable and productive manner.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've become substantially more environmentally concerned, while at the same time others have also.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would not make significant changes as they are doing wonderfully, but I'd make sure that our youth (especially elementary school kids) become completely aware about issues.
