In a recent interview, Charlie Venuto shared how he used APUS grants to highlight the work of influential environmentalists Allan and Helen Cruickshank.

Interview with APU Alumna, Heather Groen
If youâ€™re not able to participate in an Earth Day event, then there are many ways you can help contribute working towards our 2020 goal. For example, you could grow your own produce, invest in hydroponic gardening or aquaponics, or just simply plant trees in your own yard for shade canopy and food and shelter for wildlife and birds. Every effort counts. If you do nothing, then you are not improving; you are diminishing.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics states that environmental scientists and specialists have a positive outlook in job growth, 15% faster than other occupations. While I was studying for my Bachelor of Science in Environmental Studies, I was exposed to variety of career paths from wildlife biologist, forest rangers to environmental law and policy. Career paths were so broad, I needed help narrowing my search.
After recognizing additional skills and areas where I’ve exceled in such as writing, research and assessments, environmental due diligence became an attractive career option. Environmental due diligence helps avoid environmental risks of contamination in real estate which can impair cash flow, decline value of collateral, and cause foreclosure.
Morris Koffa helped to establish a non-profit organization, Africa Environmental Watch, whose purpose is to educate African citizens on environmental issues on solid waste, toxic waste, community school awareness, hygiene and more.
How does a species get to the point of being endangered? We truly need to understand the magnitude of this type of issue and how it effects the species.
Laura Stopper, a recent graduate student from the environmental policy and management master’s program at APU, recently wrote a children’s book to educate children on how to care for ponies and the Earth.
We recently interviewed Dr. Carol Pollio, Program Director for Environmental Sciences at American Public University, for her insight on breaking into this industry.
Earth Day is today, and for many it should be a reminder of your role in caring for the environment. Being green doesn’t have to be a full-time job, there are plenty of ways to integrate it into your everyday life without impacting your busy schedule.
