I have been a board member for Kids Who Care now for almost ten years and each year I get reminded anew of how much of an impact this program has on the school children in Berkeley County. For many children, it is the first time in their lives that they have had a chance to see some of the wildlife exhibited - let alone getting a chance to be face-to-face with them. The same goes for many of the hands-on exhibits that give the children a greater understanding and respect for their environment and environmental science.

This raising of environmental awareness is continued in the classroom both through the science projects that the children create and through the grants awarded to the winning classrooms that are used to further promote environmental science in our county.

The Great!

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

I have had several students over the years tell me of something they learned or remembered seeing at Naturescope. In many cases, they told me how they took that lesson home and tried to have their families apply it.

Help develop a better source of funding and grant applications to ensure that the program continues.

I have been a board member for 2 1/2 years and I have to say this is one of the most rewarding volunteer experiences I've ever been a part of. As a parent of two children who have had the opportunity to attend Backyard NatureScope Kids Who Care I never knew what my children were able to experience in that field trip to Santee Canal Park until I actually became a part of the board and volunteered at the event each year. It is very educational and all the volunteers seem to love what they do, including me.

The Great!

I have been on the board for Kids Who Care for quite a few years. I have children who have attended NatureScope. This organization not only instills good environmental ethics in our students it also demonstrates good leadership and community involvement as well as teamwork. What better partnership could you ask for between schools and businesses? My only wish would be to branch out...challenge other counties to get involved and maybe even take our competition outside Berkeley County. Some of the projects are really great and could certainly be shown beyond our local community. From classroom to the world we are making our environmental footprint, one student at a time.

The Great!

Personal satisfaction from seeing our students (K5 - 5th graders) get so involved with their projects. They really understand the importance of what their part is. The field trip (NatureScope) strenghtens their connection with their world.

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

To get more businesses involved. Variety of input definitely can enhance any organization. To keep the partnership we have with Berkeley County Schools.

I have worked with KWC for the past 11 years and have found it to be one of the most fun experiences I have ever had. Run entirely through dedicated volunteers.

The Great!

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

The smiles on the children's faces when they see a barn owl for the first time, or when they learn about the layers of soil and how to prevent erosion.

I can't think of anything to change!
