Except for the past few years, I have had very little experience in environmental activities. I am a senior citizen, retired teacher and project administrator.

The Great!

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

their creating a staff position for Western Maryland. They also served as a financial pass through institution for our watershed group before we attained our own 501 (c)(3) status/

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

The staff who are informed, educated, and concerned professionals who give honest responses to inquiries as they help you solve your problems.

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

See above box. I am thinking of Teddy 'Roosevelt's maxim,"Speak softly but carry a big stick," and how that applies to some of the staff I know. Others are more like "Crusaders", which is fine too.

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

Create more watershed staff positions in needed areas. Sponsor more area learning seminars. Strengthen the legal portion so more cases can be undertaken.

My first exposure to PRK was when I was recruited to help solicit donations of goods and services for its annual silent and live auction. The first thing that struck me was the recognition and respect I received from each company on the list as soon as I identified myself as a representative of PRK. I often heard that the business in question would do anything it could to help the organization with its mission. And these for me were cold calls -- people I did not know took extra time to tell me how grateful they were for the people at PRK. In terms of working directly with PRK staff and other volunteers, I find them to be bound by a single thread: passion for the beautiful rivers it serves. The sense of stewardship and responsibility to future generations is very inspiring.

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

Other than the knowledge that I'm supporting something big and incredibly important, the wonderful spirit of the staff and volunteers shines. They've got their work cut out for them, but they stay "up" about it all.

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

Intelligent, funny, compassionate, energetic.

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

Establish an endowment that could see PRK operating far into the future, for which there is great need. The work they do is not going to get any easier...
