My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for New England Wild Flower Society, Framingham, MA, USA
After having worked in a hospital setting for more than thirty years and then retiring from that setting, I wanted to return to my love for the natural world. It is not enough for me to simply walk around outside. I need a purpose-- like learning something new, making a difference by improving a habitat, helping to keep rare species flourishing. Somehow, I found NEWFS, and the folks there let me, as well as other volunteers, enter right into the work they do on a daily basis to learn about and protect the plants and their natural habitats. The staff at NEWFS have lifetimes of expertise, yet freely share their knowledge with volunteers by teaching them at every opportunity and by working alongside them in the field. This element of sharing has me returning as often as possible, and has showed me how to share with others what I have learned.
