Herndon Environmental Network (HEN) was founded in 2011 by a group of Herndon-area residents concerned about environmental issues globally and here in our community. We are working to improve the environment through education, initiatives, and advocacy in the greater Herndon, VA area.

We welcome your involvement! Community partners, volunteers, and members are crucial as we continue to expand our group and implement local projects.

We hope to see you at one of our meetings or events.
