CPF convenes a group of a dozen like-minded conservation and education foundations in Bozeman, MT to discuss a collaborative project to engage K-12 students and their natural empathy for endangered species in a solution-driven web platform to restore habitat loss and reverse biodiversity decline. Participants included: Defenders of Wildlife, E.O. Wilson Biodiversity Foundation, National Wildlife Federation, The Nature Conservancy, NatureServe, and the Turner Endangered Species Fund. From that meeting, Project Hero is born.

CPF partners with Georgia Organics to bring FoodCorps to Georgia and becomes a Service Site with four  FoodCorps members supporting Project Learning Garden.
