Feu Vert has advocated local walking trail development, collaborated on urban tree planting projects, mapped the distribution of White Pine in the Falls and Gorge, and lobbied (successfully) for studies that establish erosion susceptible (riparian) regions within the municipality. Its members advocated for and participated in the development of the Town Green plan.
