RACE is made up of volunteers and open to all residents who want to help
live sustainably and be good stewards for the earth. Serving in an
advisory capacity to Ridgefield's First Selectman, our mission is to raise awareness, educate and bring about action for the:
responsible use of energy
conservation of natural resources, and
reduction of waste
