Keeping Pinellas County Beautiful
Think globally, act locally
Use current and archived issues of the electronic edition of the St. Petersburg Times to find news or features about recycling and the environment in your local or regional community. Based on your news research, write an analysis that describes how the issue specifically impacts your community. Identify
individuals or groups in your area that are helping to improve the community by protecting the environment. You can include related headlines, articles and photos in your paper. You may wish to complete further research using additional resources. Next, share your thoughts about what you have learned here on the NIE Blogging Zone. What are the most important needs in your community? What volunteer opportunities are available? How can people help keep Largo and Pinellas County beautiful?
