This is one of the best nonprofits I've ever come across, and I say that from the perspective of a former consultant to nonprofits, foundations, and associations, as well as former senior staff at the national Land Trust Alliance. I chose to be on the board of Portland Trails because it is an amazingly efficient organization, and yet is also warm, friendly, inclusive, engaging. It is super effective in creating trails for all to access and enjoy, promotes healthy lifestyles and alternatives to over-reliance on cars, and initiates and convenes partnerships and cross-sectoral collaborations with other nonprofits, neighborhood groups, local and area businesses, schools, colleges, and universities, and government -- with the net result being enhancing the quality of life for all Portlanders. I volunteer for Portland Trails because my efforts are never wasted--this is not an organization that exists to perpetuate itself; it's a community of people working toward tangible goals, showing real results, literally "on the ground." If I sound passionate about this organization, it's because I am: and with many good reasons!

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

walking and cycling on trails in various parts of Portland, from the paved parts of the Eastern prom Trails to more rugged territory that feels like you're far from the city, tho only a couple of miles away!

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
