This year’s Bay Nature Local Heroes are helping their communities connect with and protect local habitats

On this edition of Your Call, we're speaking with three of the winners of this year’s Bay Nature's Local Hero Awards. Since 2011, the Bay Nature Institute has honored Bay Area-based activists, environmental educators, and up-and-coming young conservation leaders for their outstanding contributions to the people and the natural world of our region.

In an increasingly turbulent world, these local heroes have shown the importance of connecting with and protecting our local habitats. How are environmental activists and conservationists improving their communities and what can we learn from them?
