NORFOLK -- You might be one of the many people in Hampton Roads who are doing what they can to go green.

The Watershed and Habitat Friendly survey wants to know who you are, what steps your taking and if anything can be done to make it easier.

"Anything that's related to trying to reduce nutrients and sediment and the pollution they produce when they run off your lawn and get into the streets and gutters," explained Skip Stiles, the Executive Director of  Wetlands Watch.

The group was asked to create an online survey for the Hampton Roads Planning District Commission - questions are as basic as what do you put on your lawn?

Stiles says it's a job that has to be done yard by yard.

Eco-friendly programs are more common now, especially because of organizations like The Elizabeth River Project, the Department of Conservation and Recreation and Co-Operative Extensions.

"This survey is a start to bring efforts together and get cities involved to contribute and to take some credit too," he added.

The survey will remain online until the end of March.
