Five starts for good old Slide Ranch, which is more than a "non-profit" or a collection of programs, more than the sum of its parts. It is way of thinking, of being in the world, utterly bound in space and time to there and now.

As a former staff person, I have seen the value of Slide Ranch on both the clients served as well as on the residential teacher training program for the teaching interns. These teachers are the "face of Slide Ranch." When participants disembark from their bus or car, they are embraced by the expansive view of the ocean, the breeze on their skin, the wild land beneath their feet. Then they meet a warm-hearted guide for the day who teaches about what and where they live. The experience arises authentically from the land, and by the end of the day most children are so touched they never want to leave. The impressions last for a lifetime. I have seen many parents bring their children to family day programs because they remember their personal experience of Slide Ranch from their own youth, remember being touched to their core with appreciation for this planet and our role in it, and want to share that very same experience with their own children. For myself, and for countless others, my time at Slide Ranch is one that has changed who I am in the world.

The Great!

More feedback...

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

how close it is to our everyday world, yet how far removed it seems at the same time

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

inspired, grounded, heart felt.

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

bring the facilities up to modern building code standards set out by the National Park Service...but hopefully without losing their quaint charm
