The Nicodemus Wilderness Project has been instrumental in maintaining this adopted area of the Albuquerque Foothills. They have been a willing partner and enthusiastic with their support of the community and the students volunteers. I have only had positive experiences working shoulder to shoulder and in partnership with all involved across the years. Bill Pentler

The Nicodemus Wilderness Project (NWP) teamed up with the City of Albuquerque Open Space Division to adopt the Piedra Lisa Open Space in 2000. At this time the Piedra Lisa Canyon was still suffering from the abuse it had seen prior to it becoming a part of the City of Albuquerque's Open Space program. Since adopting this canyon within the Sandia Foothills, with its rare riparian area, the NWP has helped organize 3 conservation projects each year to help elimate evasive plant species, replant native trees and shrubs, remove graffiti, reduce erosion, construct and maintain trails, and cleanup trash and recyclables. Throughout the last 10 years the NWP has recruited over a thousand volunteers to participate in these conservation projects, with a special focus on involving youth groups. The efforts of the NWP, locally here in ALbuquerque and internationally, have made a difference in the lives of many young people and has had a positve effect on our natural environment.

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

the positive attitudes of everyone involved.

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

reach many more youngsters around the world through the Apprentice Ecologist Initiative and get them involved and caring about our natural environment.

I have worked with the Nicodemus Wilderness Project (NWP) on their annual Spring Sandia Foothills Conservation project and Make a Difference Day Cleanup for three years. These two events on average bring out 100 volunteers to do trash cleanup, graffiti removal, and trail maintenance in one of the most important natural areas of the City of Albuquerque. In addition to these annual events, their Apprentice Ecologist Initiative, which allows kids from all over the world to get first hand experience with conservation projects and a chance to win a scholarship to continue their work. Their level of dedication and professionalism is outstanding and I highly recommend them as an organization.

The Great!

As a close partner working with the Nicodemus Wilderness Project, my experience overall was wonderful. The large amount of work we completed in half a day will continue to keep the area beautiful and enjoyable for all public users as well as the important aspect of cleaning, maintaining, and enhancing the natural environment. My experience working with NWP was rewarding on many accounts. I look forward to working with them again this year. Thank you Nicodemus for protecting the natural environment through community volunteer organizing!

The Nicodemus Wilderness Project is an amazing organization many ways. When it comes to environmental issues, they achieve a spectacular goal of educating the coming generations by promoting contests among young students from highschool and college to take an initiative to positively impact Earth's environments. This is not only a efficient way to stimulate younger generations be proactive and care about our world, but also an inspiring experience to others. I had my first contact with NWP when submitted my essay about my experience with recycling project in Pantanal's community, in Brazil. Through their website I could inspire and be inspired by other students' projects, and this year I helped choosing this year's winner of the award.

After meeting project directors Rob and Yih-Ming, I have continued to donate to this project and to share it with others through the classes I teach. Each year I receive incredible progress reports of the amount of inner city students the Project is now bringing in to the Sandia Mts to clean up and to learn about nature. I am a professor in Maryland and someday hope to hike those same trails with my granddaughters, dragging out own bags of collected debris. WHAT A MARVELOUS CONCEPT...THE NEXT GENERATION AND CITY KIDS EMBRACING WILDLIFE AND RIVERS.

The Great!

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

a visit I made in 2003 to see the trails and to see the progress in the area that had been de-trashed and hiked.

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

Following its growth in the monthly reports, colorful, detailed, and growing!

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

in love with their work and living their own ecological friendly lives.

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

Organize and transport thousands of inner-city students and train leaders to run summer camps in this marvelous and vast area; to learn of water management, of wildlife and nature values...to educate for the future of the planet.

Ways to make it better...

I had been able to travel there in person and participate with the camp kids. It is my hope to do so in the future.
