The Herndon Environmental Network (HEN), active since 2012, was founded by a small group of Herndon-area residents concerned about environmental issues. We work to bring awareness of environment through education, initiatives, and advocacy in the Herndon area. We welcome your involvement!
Our mission is to establish a presence in the community and give a voice to vitally important issues affecting the world around us and our impact on it. We believe a cleaner, healthier Earth starts at home through local initiatives, education, and advocacy. Community partners, volunteers, and members are crucial as we continue to expand our group and implement local projects. HEN is a volunteer-run, volunteer-led 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
