Audubon South Carolina – Project Protho

Birds play a vital role in a thriving ecosystem. They act as pollinators, helping to fertilize plants, while controlling insects and pests. Through a grant from the Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation, Audubon South Carolina, a state branch of the National Audubon Society, and its partners are creating a network of MOTUS Towers across South Carolina for migratory research. The towers track priority bird species and migration patterns to understand when and why birds leave certain environments, where they’re traveling to, the threats they’re facing, and much more. With this information, researchers can help protect bird populations, support conservation efforts, preserve and restore habitats, while also developing educational programs for students, school groups, and visitors to local wildlife sanctuaries.

Youth Garden Project

"Growing food, kids, and community" – that’s the focus of the Youth Garden Project in Moab, Utah, a nonprofit organization that is growing the next generation of gardeners and connecting them with food. Through the organization, more than 1,600 Grand County youth engage in hands-on learning, making connections between what they’re taught in the classroom and the real-world impacts of food and farming. Emily Robertson, Executive Director for the Youth Garden Project noted: "With Dominion Energy's support, so many students will get a chance to learn about and meaningfully contribute to our community and food system while bolstering other valuable skills and knowledge that support their development along the way.”
