1% for Nature
Protecting and enhancing special places in the Pocono Mountains for all to enjoy. 1% for Nature, Inc. raises funds from businesses and individuals and uses funds to make grants to qualified nonprofit organizations and local government entities to support the conservation and public enjoyment of wildlife habitat, trails, streams and parks in Monroe County, Pennsylvania. Funds are raised primarily by participating businesses collecting a voluntary 1% donation from their customers at the point of sale. 1% for Nature is inviting businesses in Monroe County to participate in the program, but businesses and individuals can also donate directly. A grant committee will recommend projects in Monroe County that will connect trails and open space properties, protect land and water, or make wild places accessible to the public.
