I served as a board member for 6 years and am an ongoing donor. The EV is constantly reviewing their environmental education programs for kids to update and improve the materials and information. Now that the EV is in its Baylands home they use the gorgeous facility to inspire people in even more ways. I can learn about grey fox habits or enjoy an afternoon of opera surrounded by nature's beauty. The people who make up the heart and soul of the EV are down-to-earth wonderful.
My daughter introduced us to EV. She was a 4th grade teacher at Oak Knoll School. Michelle's classes enjoyed bird watching among other experiences. The people of EV are committed to teaching children about their environment through field trips, classroom visits and many other outdoor opportunities. EV offers schools a wonderful means to enrich their own science programs.
I have supported the EV as a donor, board member and volunteer for nearly 25 years and marveled at the way they have grown and responded to the changing needs of the environmental world and children with improved teaching and technology. The new Eco Center is very exciting and I am proud to be a supporter.
I served as a classroom docent for this fabulous nonprofit for almost ten years before returning to full time paid work. Teaching young children about the water cycle, tectonic plates or bird bills was very rewarding and helped to maintain my faith in the Socratic style of teaching. I then served on the board of trustees and discovered that the EV was also incredibly well-run as well as having passionate volunteers. Great place to put your time and your money.
I support the EV because it is a high quality organization doing important work.Â In this era when schools are really suffering, I appreciate that they are helping over 400 teachers with science education. My donations go to a good cause.Â
It has been an absolute pleasure to be a part of the Environmental Volunteer (EV) family. The staff are knowledgeable, eager to help, fun, and accessible. I have found that all of the people associated with the EVS are down to earth and committed to their mission of teaching kids to love nature. My donation seems to go far, as volunteers are used to do the lion's share of the direct work with kids.
