Review for Salmon Protection and Watershed Network (SPAWN), Forest Knolls, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a former intern, I can speak from my heart that SPAWN is an A+ organization that truly makes a positive difference in people's lives. From raising native plants for use in restoration projects to teaching inner city school groups about the connection between native salmon and the redwood forests, SPAWN is tireless in its efforts to make the world a better place. During my time there, I met several children who had never or rarely been out in nature before coming to SPAWN's headquarters, and before they left, they came to the conclusion that "nature isn't so scary after all". Imagine what those children would have grown up like without such an important experience. SPAWN also participates in monitoring the endangered coho salmon population and advocates for enhanced protections along creek banks similar to those found in surrounding counties. They have volunteer days every Friday which are suitable for all ages and abilities and many Saturdays too. I highly recommend volunteering with them or even just stopping by to visit and asking questions. All staff are extremely friendly and willing to answer any questions. You might even get a tour of the property if you want!

Review for Center for Biological Diversity Inc, Tucson, AZ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Very useful weekly newsletter with short summaries and links to longer stories. Always some fun news at the end, such as this week's "spooky species of All Hallows' Eve". Also has frequent petitions to sign so people can do something about the problems they read about.
