Review for River of Words, Berkeley, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

A committed and energetic crew supports River of Words. I had the wonderful opportunity to see how Pamela, Susan, and Louisa work tirelessly to help the organization remain active. No other organization works as hard to encourage children to make the connection between themselves and the rivers and wetlands surrounding their homes. The workshops they offer help introduce poetry and art to students in a time when these essential activities receive very little funding from local and national governments. I fear that without River of Words we might lose a generation of poets, artists, and environmentalists.

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

I helped sort and organize poems and art work students submitted to the annual contest in 2009. I was amazed at the surprising connections these poems and pictures showed to watersheds and the environment.
