In 1968, our founders had a vision of enhancing, preserving and improving our local natural environment. The mission was to provide an inviting environment in which to live, work and play, and to ensure the Iowa City area community provides citizens and visitors to our area with attractive and welcoming green spaces. The vision continues today as Project GREEN touches the lives of so many people through our nonprofit organization and affiliate partners.
Our goal is consistent: Serve by improving and enhancing our area’s natural environment, primarily by beautifying green spaces such as parks, major community entryways, roadsides and median parkways, and public school grounds.
Sponsors and supporters are encouraged to contribute to Project GREEN Endowment Fund via the Community Foundation of Johnson County to provide for ongoing maintenance expense of our projects that serve the community that we know and love.
