Henrico’s Environmental Action Resource Team

Henrico’s Environmental Action Resource Team (H.E.A.R.T.) pledges to reduce our impact 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. 

Exploring Henrico’s Environmental Initiatives

Hello! I am Stewart the Turtle! As H.E.A.R.T.’s mascot, I am a spokesperson for all things environmental. I will update the blog with H.E.A.R.T.’s initiatives and remind you to be GREEN! Together, we can make Henrico a greener and better space for all of its inhabitants — people and animals alike!
