Review from Guidestar

My family and I love the PCEI's many family-friendly events, particularly the summer storytime series. The PCEI staff work hard to help those who visit the institute to learn about the importance of the natural world as well as the importance of communities acting together to preserve this world. Thanks, PCEI, for all you do to make our gorgeous Moscow an even better place to live!

I have 30 years experience in environmental regulation and management, specifically water quality remediation, restoration, and project management. I have worked with PCEI prioritizing and funding water quality restoration projects since 1994 and continue to monitor their work. PCEI provides a value added social and environmental service to our watershed communities through example. I recommend involvement in PCEI to everyone, including my grandkids.

PCEI is one of my favorite places to experience for many reasons, these are a few...
1) The outdoor campus inspires learning and positive engagement for the environment.
2) Several internships and service projects are open for young people to build their skills and resume.
3) PCEI
creates forums for the free exchange of views and ideas.

PCEI is great for all ages to experience...it's an amazing place!

I am a current Board member and have been volunteering since 2006. I started volunteering in the native plant nursery when I first moved to Moscow, ID as a "trailing spouse." Then I successfully applied for the Community Outreach Coordinator AmeriCorps position. My research on community organizations and volunteerism (in that delightfully juicy, messy, and complicated intersection among poverty-environment-resilience-social capital) helps me to understand PCEI's importance within the community. The learning opportunities organized by PCEI staff and volunteers are amazing, as are the development of rich networks and community connections. PCEI is welcoming of many points of view, and is a great place to find information about a wide variety of potential solutions to environmental problems. The two Nature Centers are delightful respites from everyday bustle, and the events that PCEI sponsors bring many fun and interesting people together. Connecting People, Place, and Community is our theme.

The Palouse-Clearwater Environmental Institute is my most cherished local nonprofit. Their work is so diverse. From planting trees near a local wetland and educating children about climate change to organizing a reused plate project or donating bikes to Africa, this group is the premier environmental organization in Idaho. They work with the UI to run the McCall Outdoor Science School, the only residential science school in all of Idaho! And the staff, volunteers and members are wonderful people working to make a difference!

The Great!

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

the blue tubes placed throughout our watersheds, the intelligent comments of the children educated and in the smiles on the faces of the over 1,000 members the Palouse-Clearwater Environmental Institute serves!

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

only do it long enough for the current executive director of 19 years, Tom Lamar, to go on an extended vacation.

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

it's dedication to sustainability. From a strawbale stucco structure to waterwise landscaping, composting and solar pumps, this organization has it all.

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

dedicated, hard working and motivated by the good work of the organization. They all were having fun and expressed interest in learning more about what the organization does.

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

purchase adjacent land to preserve for open space, and be able to build the wheelchair accessible pathway and restroom so that people of all ages and abilities can enjoy their Nature Center!

Ways to make it better...

I had more time or money to donate to such a worthy, community-building cause.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

continuing to raise funds to purchase surrounding open space so that it can be preserved.

One thing I'd also say is that...

This organization has been the "incubator" of many other successful nonprofits in Idaho such as Idaho Smart Growth, The Village Bicycle Project, the Backyard Harvest, just to name a few. The vision and enthusiasm of PCEI is to be commended.
