Santa Magdalena Center For Peace & Environment

This organization started in 1992 as a "walk-rally" to help awaken people’s consciousness of individual and communal responsibility in promoting Peace and protecting the environment. It developed into an annual week-long event each October, with awards given to outstanding citizens who protect and promote environmental concerns in their daily lives. They are very active in local cooperative efforts to unite communities in protecting the environment and building a culture of Peace.
