Building the Bench for Mount Diablo with Community Conservation

2019-06-13T14:23:01-07:00May 24th, 2019|Categories: Blog, Featured Content, Press Release|Tags: , , , , |

Pittsburg High School, Mount Diablo Resource Recovery, and Save Mount Diablo are building up the bench of future supporters for the beautiful and natural Mount Diablo area. According to a 2017 report, The Path Ahead, “Today, kids spend less time outside than prison inmates, with the average child playing freely outside for just four to seven minutes a day.”  This report, commissioned by the REI Co-op, notes that the average American now spends about 95 percent of their life indoors. It further reports that we are becoming an “indoor species” which comes with consequences: “Our health and well-being may suffer.  And the less we value our outdoor spaces, the less likely we are to protect them.” To help address such concerns, Save Mount Diablo (“SMD”), Pittsburg High School (“PHS”), and sponsor Mount Diablo Resource Recovery (“MDRR”) recently signed and then completed an educational and experiential Conservation Collaboration Agreement.
