Finalists announced for Eco-Ambassadors People's Choice Award

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Local organizations are being recognized for planting the seeds of environmental progress, and San Diegans will reap the benefits.

San Diego Gas and Electric and the River Park Foundation announced the finalists for this year's Eco-Ambassadors People's Choice Award Tuesday at an event hosted by News 8's Vanessa Bezic.

Each organization was selected based on its commitment to finding innovative ways to care for the environment.

"Environmental education is one area, restoration efforts, cleanup efforts. Organizations that are contributing one way or another to our precious environment," Frank Urtasun of SDG&E said.

"The idea is that these are the best in San Diego, some of the very best organizations. And they're really making a difference," Rob Hursel of the San Diego River Park Foundation said.

The top eco-friendly group will get a $25,000 grant from SDG&E.

You can cast your vote for the People's Choice Award online starting this Friday. Voting ends June 20.
