Support volunteer's work at Green Spring Gardens

Clint Fields at Green Spring Gardens.
Clint Fields, a longtime volunteer at Green Spring Gardens, is one of three finalists in Virginia’s Cox Conserves Heroes, a program sponsored by Cox Communications and the Trust for Public Land that recognizes volunteers who are creating, preserving, or enhancing shared outdoor spaces.

Each finalist has secured a $2,500 donation for a nonprofit of his or her choice, and finalists are now competing for an additional $7,500 in an online voting contest.

You can see a video describing Fields’ volunteer efforts and cast a vote for his nonprofit of choice, the Friends of Green Spring Gardens (FROGS), on the Cox Conserve Heroes website. The voting period is open through 5 p.m. on June 18. The winner will be announced June 25.

Fields has been an active member of the FROGS board for nearly a decade. He has been a key player in creating community connections and strengthening the organization’s long-term financial sustainability. He volunteers weekly to teach students visiting Green Spring Gardens and also trains other volunteers to expand the program’s reach.

If Fields wins this award, the funding will be used to bring an additional 2,800 lower-income schoolchildren to educational programs at Green Spring Gardens.
