Our Projects

We’ve been busy! Over the course of the past two decades SURCP volunteers have devoted themselves to a plethora of projects dedicated to societal and environmental health. Below we have a sampling of our many efforts. SURCP has facilitated millions of dollars of grant funds to these unique endeavors on a completely voluntary basis. Countless hours of community engagement have resulted in long term successful results across a broad spectrum of ecological and social objectives. Please consider donating and or volunteering in our work. If you have a particular interest that you believe needs to be addressed don’t hesitate to contact an organizational member to explore the possibilities.
