I have enjoyed being a member the past year. I like the educational efforts being offered to the community. The one I have enjoyed the most and that has the most potential is the FRWC-sponsored Flint River "floats" where non-members and members can interact in the watershed and learn more about the amazing resources they may not even know exist in their back yard + meet very committed environmental stewards!

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

getting out on the water and sharing resources with strong like-minded environmentalists.

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

change the way people live in Genesee County ... even ameliorate the obesity epidemic we have here!

I've volunteered on a number of their projects -- not every year - - and, generally, on various projects from time to time. I contribute regularly / work very hard on one of the chapters - and serve on the Board

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

several areas -- most notably in education and outreach areas - staffing the booth at expos / speaking to groups / working with students. I've seen considerable growth in the awareness of water quality and personal habits / practices

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

Flint River GREEN - the student project dealing with watershed awarness

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

Generally, outstanding

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

One million would be nice - can't imagine $10! Like many non-profits, a great deal of our time is spent 'keeping the wolf from the door' and that takes away from out basic mission to protect, preserve and improve watershed 'best management practices'

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week

As the volunteer center for Genesee County we are happy to refer volunteers to the Flint River Watershed Coalition. The clean up of the Flint River is critical as are efforts to monitor the health of the river and stop people from dumping pollutants into drains.

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

their Flint River clean ups. Participants in our leadership programs have taken part in the clean ups and had a great hands on volunteer experience. They also learn a lot about the importance of the health of the Flint River.

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

They are great collaborators-- open to including other groups in their efforts, taking part in our Volunteer Expo each year, reaching out to other nonprofit organizations.

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

very dedicated to the health of the Flint River, fun, excited about their mission.

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

No only expands its clean up efforts of the Flint River, but lead the charge to turn the river into a recreational attraction for Genesee County.
