CSX Transportation is a proud supporter of The Nature Conservancy’s Nature Works Everywhere program. In the 2012 – 2013 school year, thanks to the support of CSX, The Nature Conservancy worked with a local DC non-profit to partner with local school teachers and children and all grade levels to implement a garden based curriculum, and build pollinator gardens on school grounds, through our Nature Works Everywhere program. This led to active engagement of children and teachers in improving our environment through education and hands on activities. In the 2013-2014 school year, CSX provided additional support to expand the Nature Works Everywhere garden program through an active grants program for schools in Baltimore, MD and Atlanta, GA, as well as build out additional digital resources. In 2014-2015, CSX will continue their engagement with our educational program by providing the support to enable us to offer grants to schools in Philadelphia, PA and New York City, as well as engaging in our national volunteer program through an event in Atlanta, GA in Fall 2014.
