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.

More feedback...

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.
