Blog started to raise awareness on environmental issues

The Wilderness Society, located in Washington, D.C., has recently started a blog with the purpose of giving college students a place to share their experiences in environmentalist projects, raise awareness and talk about new school initiatives, such as University of Georgia’s recent decision to stop using coal energy.

The project is aimed at recruiting younger members, as the website for the D.C. Wilderness Society is targeted largely at recruiting older members in their 50s and 60s.

The concept of creating a blog was introduced by a group seven University of Georgia (UGA) students participating in “Creative Consultants,” a student run Public Relations firm hosted by the UGA’s chapter of Public Relations Student Society of America.
