The Berkshire Environmental Action Team (BEAT) is the most effective grassroots environmental advocacy and education organization in Berkshire County and possibly in all of Massachusetts. I love the combination of action, education, and data collection that is supported by the integrity that underlies all BEAT activities. Activities include wildlife tracking, river cleanups, wildlife stream crossing and vernal pool data collection, environmental activism, event and activity information distribution, and more. I am honored to serve on the BEAT board.
