Conserve It Forward, Inc. came to being in 2010 via a nine-year-old girl, “…because of her interest and concern for the environment and living things,” notes a blog for amphibians.org.
Avalon Theisen explained to the writer, “I hope to show others, especially youth, that no matter what you believe in and enjoy, DO something about it. Learn, act and share. Your interest may not be environmental. It may be speaking out for human rights, or developing new technology, but you can make a difference, no matter your age.”
The non profit’s mission statement reads, “To promote environmental education, awareness and action that benefits both the natural world and people, inspiring youth and communities to Conserve It Forward.”
