Role: Professional with expertise in this field
Rating: 4 stars  

Golden Hour provides the kind of direct training on the ground that is necessary for the current and next generations of conservation and restoration ecologists - getting people in touch with nature at this level builds long-term commitment and spreads the word. Practical and scientific approaches get the jobs done and educate effectively.

They are great at leveraging small grants into big results, and have been a great non-profit partner for several restoration projects.
