The CCIA has a history of protecting the environment. Our staff can be seen throughout the county in CNG vehicles, presenting anti-litter programs, removing illegal dumps, preserving our coast lines. Volunteers are essential to help us in our commitment to the county. By participating in programs hosted by the CCIA, you too can make the difference in keeping Cumberland County clean and green.
This year’s Americorps Watershed Ambassador for Cumberland County wants to raise awareness of our local waterways environment. Whether it’s participating in events such as shell-bagging in Port Norris, wading through a creek, or presentations indoor, she’s here to promote, protect and preserve our environment for today and tomorrow.
The CCIA is dedicated to the preservation of historical, cultural and natural resources of Cumberland County. From environmentally sound best practices in daily operations to hosting county-wide annual cleanups, the CCIA stands at the forefront as a proponent for the environment locally, nationally and globally.
According to Keep America Beautiful (www.kab.org), about 85% of littering is the result of individual attitudes. We can change attitude by changing behavior. We can change behavior through education. The CCIA is committed to anti-litter education on every level from pre-school to senior citizens to reduce litter and keep our county clean and green.
