one of the more effective and respected organizations i am aware of. it is a pleasure to work with such committed board members, staff, and volunteers to protect and increase awareness regarding the Great Salt Lake and its magnificent aesthetic, economic, and ecologically critical values.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

visting the Lake on a regualr basis wtih my family and enjoying and appreciating the healthier ecosystem that results from this organizations work.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

increase efforts to bring in new members and educate and expose the public to the rich resource.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

feeling i am a part of an organization that is accomplishing.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

committed.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

effectively reach out to more of the lakes neighbors, mainly those people who live near it and don`t really appreciate it.

Ways to make it better...

I spent more time exploring the Lake.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

maintaining a presence as an advocacy group and not an antagonist organization.

One thing I'd also say is that...

there is much to be learned from this organizations effective efforts.

I choose the non-profits I support carefully and this is the one I support the most. We are a very small organization with a big job. I have been with FRIENDS for one year and it has been a lot of hard yet rewarding work. Our full-time director donates all of her time and our dedicated volunteer board goes above and beyond with their support. With the help of many enthusiastic volunteers, our wonderfully gifted Education and Outreach Director takes groups of 4th graders to the lake and teach them why it is so important. The GSL is facing some significant threats and FRIENDS speaks on behalf of the lake. FRIENDS has been protecting this hemispherically important ecosystem since 1994 and will be here for many years to come. I am proud to be a part of this organization.
