About

The North Area Environmental Council (NAEC) was founded in 1969 by a group of North Hills residents in response to an environmental series at the North Hills YWCA called Our Plundered Planet.

From this beginning awareness, NAEC has published studies of the watersheds in the North Hills, operated recycling events, conducted environmental education and cleanup events, awarded teacher and student scholarships,  and advocated for environmental protection.  NAEC publishes a bimonthly newsletter about current environmental concerns.

NAEC’s mission is to support, promote, and foster quality of life in our community through the protection and improvement of a healthy and biologically diverse local environment.  In support of its mission NAEC engages in ecological restoration projects, land conservation, education, advocacy, and scientific research.
