Review for Acterra: Action For A Healthy Planet, Palo Alto, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Acterra is a model for community involvement in care for the environment, providing leadership, training, and opportunities to participate. Acterra engages local political, educational and religious organizations without losing its focus, and so has earned universal respect (or as universal as any regional body can achieve).

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

consistent leadership in stream and watershed management - both professional and volunteer - and in restoration of public lands (Arastradero Preserve).

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

among the best you will find anywhere - dedicated, knowledgeable, patient, and yet still possessing a sense of humor.

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

franchise itself everywhere.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2008

Role:  General Member of the Public & worked on creek cleanup supervised by Acterra; attended workshops; invited Acterra to speak at my church.
