I have taken part in sereval of their projects and trained as a crew leader with them. I hate to gush, but they are well organized, professional, and effective. They work well with private, NGO, and government organizations to produce great results. They take good care of their volunteers, providing them with food and entertainment after a hard day's, or weekend, of work. Their training is professional and affordable for people of all walks of life. They invite volunteers to get involved in all levels of their organization from field work, to cooking, to crew leading, project planning etc. They are an open organization attracting peple from all walks of life.

I look forward to continue working with them.

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

Working behind the scenes to organize a project really opened my eyes to all the hard work that goes into a creating successful restoration project. Success occurs when volunteers have a safe and fun experience while producing concrete results: eroded trails re-routed and re-vegetated, thousands of plants put in the ground in a single day, acres cleared of invasive weeds, collecting native seeds for use in future restoration work.

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

working with experts who donate their time to healing damaged lands.

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

hard-working, dedicated, knowledgeable, fun-loving.
