Henrico’s Environmental Action Resource Team

Heart Landing Page Banner April 2024

Henrico’s Environmental Action Resource Team (H.E.A.R.T.) pledges to reduce the impact of Henrico County General Government and Henrico Schools on the environment. 

The Henrico Environmental Action Resource Team (H.E.A.R.T.) is made up of representatives from various Henrico County agencies all dedicated to pushing forward county efforts to promote sustainability, preserve natural resources, beautify the community and protect the environment. They serve as a think tank for the county’s environmental initiatives and aim to streamline such programs. Follow along as they make Henrico County and our environment a better place! 

We will:

  • Promote sustainability, conserve resources, and strive for the highest quality of life for our residents. 
  • Expand and promote the use of our sustainable transportation network. 
  • Protect county greenspace and provide high quality recreation opportunities. 
  • Conserve and provide stewardship of our natural water resources.
