Highland Heights Green Task Force

Highland Heights, Ohio



Home Page



We all have our different shades of green, some light green, some dark. Regardless of what shade of green you are, you don't have to do it all to have a positive impact on the Earth.

Goal: To promote and organize community educational programs and projects with an emphasis on environmentally friendly living.

Contact: If you are interested in becoming a member/volunteer please contact Judy Dearden at 440.646.9820 or email at
hhgreentaskforce@yahoo.com. Also, find us on Facebook!
