Review for ACTERRA: Action for a Healthy Planet, Palo Alto, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Best non-profit I have ever had the pleasure to know about. This organization is a shining example and a model for others to emulate. I'd like to start a grass-roots environmental organization in MY city, patterned after Acterra (though I still think of it as Bay Area Action, it's previous name).

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

The wonderful people Arastradero Preserve I met my (now) wife at an Acterra event! Laura Stec - she rocks!

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

The best people on earth

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

Have a more secure future

Ways to make it better...

I could have stayed living in the area, but life took me away!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Bad economy / fundraising

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2008

Role:  Volunteer & I was, at various times over the years, a volunteer with their environmental stewardship projects, the electric vehicle project, the Environmental Eating Action Team, and other projects that were offshoots and affilitates to Acterra.
