Projects we completed in 2023  📰 • New work in 2024 🆕

2023 was a busy year for Team Throwe! We wrapped up exciting projects in New England
and the Mid-Atlantic, and held peer-to-peer workshops across the East and Gulf coasts.
Much is in store in 2024 — resilience planning in military communities, continued grant funding technical assistance, and
 the celebration of Throwe Environmental's 5 year anniversary! 🎉

Join us in taking a look back at 2023, and a look ahead to the new year!
