KENNY CHESNEY will serve as honorary board member for the COASTAL CONSERVATION ASSOCIATION’s national marine habitat program, THE BUILDING CONSERVATION TRUST.
"We have come to a place where everyone needs to get involved if the oceans, the beaches, the sea life is important to us as human beings," said KENNY. "No one person can save the world- or the water. But in creating alliances, bringing people who care together and creating projects that can have an impact we start to slowly protect and build up this important natural resource," he continued.
THE BUILDING CONSERVATION TRUST was founded in 2010 to support projects that revitalize marine habitats and establish foundations for marine ecosystems. Since its founding, the TRUST has applied millions of dollars to marine habitat projects, including an "urban reef" in which CHESNEY helped place two artificial reefs in JACKSONVILLE, FL’s ST. JOHN’s RIVER last year.
