Review for SHAWNEE RESOURCE CONSERVATION AND DEVELOPMENT AREA INC, Marion, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've been involved with the Shawnee RC&D Area in some capacity since 1987. They have consistently served as an incubator and positive example of innovative conservation initiatives in the biologically diverse 16 southernmost counties of Illinois. Thousands of acres of land restoration - wetlands, forests, agricultural fields - all better off due to the efforts of this not-for-profit organization. Their biggest concern is cash flow, as so many grants are now provided on a reimbursement basis. They need the cash outlay, in order to sponsor more projects simultaneously in the region. The needs are many, and this organization occupies a special niche in conservation. Definitely a cause worth supporting. www.shawneercd.org.

Review for American Forest Foundation, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars   Featured Review

I had the great pleasure of working for AFF for 5+ years - mid 2000 through early 2006. While many of the players in the national office have changed, the strength of this organization continues to lie with its grass roots members and partners in the field. From its "salt of the earth" award winning Tree Farmers, to the state Tree Farm Committee volunteers, to the tried and true Tree Farm Inspectors, to the dedicated volunteers and professionals carrying out the Project Learning Tree program with our nation's youth. This is a proven program worthy of our (your) support.
