A great organization. The projects that they are involved in to preserve the areas around the Grand Canyon are extremely important. The people involved with the organization are very dedicated and extremely nice. The volunteer projects that they do are very well organized and a great deal of fun. I had a great time on the project that I did last summer. I am eagerly looking forward to being involved more with this organization.

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

A very interesting project studying plant and tree growth after a fire on the Kaibab plateau.

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

Have even more trips that volunteers could participate in.

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

The volunteer project I was involved in was very interesting and a lot of fun. I enjoyed the project, the people I met, and camping out north of the Grand Canyon.

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

Very dedicated, passionate about what they do, very nice, and very friendly.

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

Help preserve the Grand Canyon and the areas around it. One of the world's greatest environmental areas should definitely be protected!

Ways to make it better...

My experience was great. I want to be involved with this organization more.

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

Protecting the areas around the Grand Canyon from development.

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

This is a great organization.

GCT does excellent work on a broad range of issues. I am particularly pleased to see their volunteer program developing into such a vital part of the organization, as it has the potential to deeply connect individuals to the mission through experiential learning, long-lasting social connections, and a greater sense of purpose and drive. In my first volunteer experience with GCT just a couple of weeks ago, I found they do an excellent job in coordinating efforts and making volunteers feel valued. And it was just plain fun!

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

their tremendous accomplishments across the Colorado Plateau.

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

try to get even greater publicity about the great work being accomplished.

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

the opportunity to learn in the field and reconnect with my passion for field work.

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

committed, hard-working and fun to be with.

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

do what it does even more effectively!

Ways to make it better...

I had been able to attend a training ahead of time.

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

funding the wide variety of programs they carry out.

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

I will continue to volunteer.

This is an amazing organization. It is a wonderful experience for volunteers to learn about the landscape and the human impacts to our environment in a hands on atmosphere. The people who work with the grand canyon trust are passionate about their work and they love what they do. With more funding, this organization could really work wonders for the land on the kaibab plateau and raise awareness about land preservation.

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

the work that my team and I did. For instance, we tore down an old fence that was negatively impacting species diversity, and we could literally see the miles of fence as it disappeared. It felt like such an accomplishment!

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

being able to learn the purpose behind all the work I did; this made it more meaningful to me.

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

extremely accommodating, friendly and knowledgeable in their field.

The Grand Canyon Trust is an organization that gets things done. This nonprofit sticks to it's mission, is open to discussions, and puts volunteers on-the-ground doing meaningful, real conservation and restoration work across the Colorado Plateau. I have not seen a nonprofit such as this that has an attitude so worldly and enthusiastic about protecting landscapes they care so deeply about.

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

each volunteers face as they felt connected with the landscapes of the southwest.

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

the huge difference we are making across the Plateau in various areas of conservation and restoration and the physical difference that shows across the landscape

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

enthusiastic, passionate, knowledgable, driven, and dedicated.

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

protect the biodiversity of landscapes covering over four states in the western part of this country.
