This is a no-nonsense, pro-environment organization that provides a good balance between first trying to convince by reason and, if that doesn't work, going after the problem following law and the courts. The Director is a brilliant and seriously committed advocate for nature. He is not afraid to deal with -- mix it up with -- the largest of public or private agencies. He gets things done and decisions made! His small but dedicated staff is allowed to operate semi-autonomously, but internal communication remains strong and positive.

The Great!

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

the protection of forests, grasslands, and alpine mountain-tops. Preservation of landscapes is emphasized over conservation of landscapes.

Ways to make it better...

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

be incompetent and the organization would fail and sink into oblivion.

More feedback...

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

observing the passion among the staff members in protecting remote areas of Wyoming and the Black Hills that seem forgotten by the other, better funded, environmentally oriented organizations.

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

dedicated, competent, and irrepressible. I'd want them on my side of the discussion!

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

better assure that landscapes are left intact and biologically functional. It could help Mother Nature maintain her original balance and selective advantages.

Ways to make it better...

I were better informed about the full range of the staff's activities.

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

budgetary insolvency. This is the only hindrance to success in purpose.

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

I despise this kind of question.

BCA HAS IMPRESSED ME CONSISTANTLY OVER A LONG PERIOD OF TIME. THEY ARE REMARKABLY EFFICIENT AND EFFECTIVE. THEY ARE VERY DESERVING OF INCREASED FINANCIAL SUPPORT AND ARE SUCH GOD STEWARDS ON HOW IT IS USED.

The Great!

THEY ARE GREAT AT MAINTAINING RELATIONSHIPS WITH THEIR SUPPORTERS

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

ALL WONDERFUL FOLKS

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

GET A RETURN N THAT INVESTMENT OF 100 MILLION

Ways to make it better...

NOTHING TO SAY

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

FINDING THE TRUE LEVEL OF SUPPORT THAT THEY ALREADY DESERVE

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

THIS AREA CAN NOT PROSPER ECONOMICALLY WITHOUT THEM

I have been impressed with BCA's willingness to partner with the faith community via the Wyoming Association of Churches. Also, their ability to take on tough issues in Wyoming through a science-based approach. Gutsy organization. I appreciate their Smart from the Start report on wind developmnet in Wyoming. Finally, they are an organized group that fights for the biodiversity of Wyoming.

I love this organization! I like its foundation in science, grassroots advocacy and direct experience with nature. I think its use of consensus is key for good decision making. I learn something every day at BCA and have high regard for my colleagues. BCA is hard-hitting and doesn't fall for fads in our field.

The Great!

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

the Black Hills National Forest, the Medicine Bow National Forest, the Red Desert, and on behalf of native species.

Ways to make it better...

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

be taking over a lot of responsibility.

More feedback...

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

how much more confidence I have that careers in nonprofits (doing something you love) is a viable option.

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

dedicated and smart. The volunteers remind me of how great humanity is.

Ways to make it better...

we were fully staffed: we could do so much more with such higher quality. Or if we had a nicer office. It would make me feel more proud about working there.

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

the cultural shifts that need to happen in a largely rural state, communications, and funding.

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

BCA has grown a lot in the last few years!

BCA is fantastic about getting the word out on issues. The only feedback I would have that is "constructive" is that sometimes, like so many environmental organizations, BCA relies on emotional rather than hard factual impact.

The Great!

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

educating the public about local and regional issues.

Ways to make it better...

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

Try to be more encompassing of the entire community, rather than "preaching to the choir."

More feedback...

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

activities like field trips to Ferris Dunes and slide shows of the Red Desert.

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

Friendly, energetic and passionate.

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

expand staffing.

Ways to make it better...

I saw a trend toward using fact-based rather than emotion-driven responses to issues.

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

Being recognized as pertinent by forces that are not in tune with the organization's philosophy and being more encompassing of the entire stakeholder community.

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

I support BCA in deed, even when I can't afford the money to support.

This organization is science-driven as it maneuvers through often difficult social, cultural and political realities. Its staff and board possess a clear understanding of its mission. We place only the need to maintain scientific, personal and organizational integrity on par with the importance of doing all our resources allow to protect wildlife and wild places in Wyoming and surrounding states.

its efforts to protect the Medicine Bow-Routt National Forest from harmful logging projects, imperiled species, Thunder Basin National Grasslands, and the Red Desert.

Ways to make it better...

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

step down and continue to do program work.

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

Its people and the successes we often celebrate

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

smart, dedicated and independent thinkers.

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

be approximately 33 times more effective and that is a conservative estimate.

Ways to make it better...

our dumpy office was not shades of pink and orange. For real.

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

financial for the short term and enduring the typical growing pains we are sure to experience.

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

this green non-profit is as lean and effective as any I know or could imagine.

BCA is an outstanding conservation organization with a dedicated staff and ambitious but effective goals. I only wish that BCA would team up with some of the fledgling conservation organizations in Idaho such as "Friends of the Clearwater." It would give BCA a broader base and would serve to strengthen the others.

This group is informed, passionate, and dedicated. Did I mention creative? They reach the public on many different levels including offering hands on trips to sites that they are intent on preserving. I support BCA to the MAX

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

how accessible the staff are.

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

great! They were friendly. They were fun.

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

put it to good use protecting the pilaging of big business in environmentally sensitive areas. That would be sooooo great. I'd love to see then have to work with 10 million bucks!

Ways to make it better...

I'd taken more time to be there.

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

funding issues; like the rest of us.

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

We were so glad to have Sarah Egolf speak at the F. E. Warren AFB Women's History Month Tea. Many people commented on how interesting her talk was to them and that they were very enlightened by her speech. Sarah is indeed a very knowledgeable and personable young woman.
