Encourage and Support Biodiversity for Impact

California flora and fauna are statewide treasures -- as diverse as any on our continent. Consider encouraging your community to notice wildflowers and the communal nature they have with other favorite wilderness players

If NYC can celebrate about California?

Utility companies, water conservation, botanical societies...and companies that benefit from biodiversity could all sponsor a "wildflower week" for outreach. After all -- who DOESN'T benefit from biodiversity?

To celebrate the diversity of native flora thriving in their five boroughs, Con Edison sponsored the first New York City Wildflower Week May 3-10, 2008.

NYC Wildflower Week celebrated all things green and wild in the Big Apple -- the hundreds of native flowers, trees, shrubs and grasses that are nestled in the five boroughs. It was a weeklong event of inspired environmental learning -- with dozens of free activities, walks and talks for all New Yorkers to enjoy.

Organized by the Torrey Botanical Society, there will be botanical walks in each borough, and lectures about the rich diversity of wildflowers found throughout the city and children's day activities.

Did you know:

  • wildflowers include more than violets and asters -- there are also flowering trees, shrubs, vines and grasses;

  • New York City has a higher percentage of open space than any major city in United States;

  • Staten Island is home to one of 14 patches of the rare Torrey's mountainmint, which Con Edison helped preserve by relocating a utility pole during an installation for new electrical service; and

  • the five boroughs are home to more than 40 percent of New York State's rare and endangered plant species.

Con Edison supports organizations that share the company's concern for preserving and protecting the environment through conservation and beautification projects, as well as through educational and career-development programs. It also recognizes the importance of conservation, recycling, reclamation efforts, and pollution prevention.

California flora and fauna are statewide treasures -- as diverse as any on our continent. To get your employees, members and community into nature, consider encouraging them to notice wildflowers and the communal nature they have with other favorite wilderness players like butterflies, worms and caterpillars, birds, and trees. They might make the connection to food! And fresh air! And clean water!

Have some fun with this delightful part of going green!
