COASTAL WOMEN FOR CHANGE
January 19, 2014

I volunteer with many organizations along the Gulf Coast and CWC is one of the best! They take very limited resources and make a huge difference for the folks they serve. Their community garden is incredible and they've helped countless children and families with their backpack give-a-ways.

GULF RESTORATION NETWORK
March 28, 2011

The GRN is an amazing regional organization that covers the entire Gulf of Mexico from Florida to Texas. The GRN is the only organization I know of that has been doing this work in every gulf state for so long - before Katrina, before Rita, before Gustav, before Ike and before the BP Oil Disaster, the Gulf Restoration Network was there. They've working to care for the Gulf and it's coastline for 15 plus years and really know their stuff.

I've volunteered with them since before the oil disaster, back when the big issue was wetlands loss. My role has been to let folks outside the region (in my case the Boston area) know what's REALLY going on in the Gulf and how folks can help to advocate for and protect it. Since the BP Oil Drilling Disaster, the GRN has been the eyes and ears of the gulf - flying over to get aerial views, having photographers out on the water, and letting us all know what's really going on. This has been very important because the media is not reporting the true extent of the damage. Through the GRN, I've been able to become a better-informed citizen and have been able to show others the importance of the Gulf Coast ecosystem.

Thank you, Gulf Restoration Network!

The Great!
