On this edition of Your Call’s One Planet Series, we are speaking with two of the winners of this year’s Bay Nature's Local Hero Awards. Since 2011, the Bay Nature Institute has honored remarkable activists, environmental educators, and up-and-coming young conservationists. How are environmental activists and conservationists improving their communities and what can we learn from them?
