I flew on a watershed aerial tour a few years ago. I was amazed at how much of a difference this perspective of the land can make. I was amazed and inspired by the flight itself (made me want to learn to fly) but in particular I'm very inspired by the mission of this group. The idea of raising awareness about conservation by taking people on a flight, or exposing environmental wrongs is genius! And the pilots who donate their time and resources are doing an amazing thing. Thank You!!

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

local resource professionals, private citizens, and elected officals particpated in multiple flights of this watershed to gain a new perspective on water quality issues. I have seen the impact this has had in the minds of everyone involved. We all have a renewed and fresh energy for tackling water issues- we each have an impact on water quality and we're all in it together!
