Billy’s connections to Environmental Education and Performance Organizations. Billy B has a number of ongoing relationships with a wide variety of Environmental Educational Organizations. Below you will find brief descriptions of those relationships and links to related projects.
PROJECT LEARNING TREE
Billy B’s first recording was ” Billy B Sings About Trees ” so a relationship with PLT was a natural fit. He has performed for PLT at many national conferences and regional workshops. He has released three award winning recordings ( recently, a remake and upgrade of ” Billy B Sings About Trees ” ) and a video compilation in conjunction with PLT. Below you can link to more in-depth descriptions of each project.

The WWF commissioned Billy to create a recording of songs, ” Biodiversity and Billy B “, and to act in videos, all of which ended up being part of their “Biodiversity 911″ project, a traveling exhibition by WWF. Also, they commissioned the creation of a live show, ” Bio, Bio, Biodiversity “, which Billy has now performed hundreds of times all over the country.
