Iraq war veteran and restoration ecologist Benjamin Haberthur secured a $10,000 grant in 2012 from the National Audubon Society and Toyota to establish the Veterans Conservation Corps in Chicago, a volunteer corps of veterans working to restore natural areas.
In 2013, Benjamin secured an additional $56,000 grant from Audubon's Toyota TogetherGreen program. He hopes that a positive experience with nature can become a broader experience shared by fellow veterans who may be struggling with symptoms of post traumatic stress disorder.
