VI RC & D is extremely important to the sustainable development of the US Virgin Islands. It is a place where volunteers, specialists and government agencies can work together toward common goals for the benefit of all. The VI RC & D has had great, measurable sucess in many project areas and I look forward to working with this group in the future.

VIRC&D is a great local resource for so many Virgin Islanders. Locals and tourists alike benefit from the activities of this nonprofit. In addition, all local environmental educators share both physical and mental resources of VIRC&D.

I know that this organization has been involved in many training opportunities for the Virgin Islands residents. They send young people on summer enrichment programs, they inform visitors and resident the importance of leaving marine organisms in the place. I have attended Grant Writing workshop that they have sponsored. They have also been involved in the establishment of the first Rain Garden project on St. Croix, also the creation and maintainance of the Est. Adventure trail which I have had the privilege of trekking. I wish the organization well and they continue to impact our VI community.

I have lived in the US Virgin Islands for over 15 years and know the work of the Virgin Islands RC&D very well. My background is environmental planning and agriculture: two areas in which VIRC&D have been actively involved for years. Their work ranges from organizing workshops for the community in the design and installation of Rain Gardens to catch, store, and treat non-point sources of water pollution, to assisting the farming community in the development of a variety of projects.
Its small staff belies its large impact in our community. VIRC&D staff’s work is enjoined by hundreds of volunteers of all ages and walks of life who amplify the creative and dedicated community work this organization undertakes daily.

I have been involved with VI RCD for several years and find that they really get things done! They go after and get grant funds to enhance the community and protect the environment. They received funds to develop a nature trail on St. Croix for all to enjoy and are currently working in several watershed to reduce the amount of sediment going into our marine waters. They are also working to increase awareness of the importance of leaving shells on the beach through the Leave Paradise in its place campaign. They put on a nonpoint source pollution conference and several grant writing seminars. These are just some of what they have been doing while I have been a member.

I like how this organization can pool together its resources -- i.e. financial, human, etc. -- in an effort to provide solutions, recommendations, that can have territory-wide impacts. I have benefited from the many trainings, grant-writing, capacity-building, nonprofit managemet, etc. this organization have sponsored over the years. It is good to see community-minded individuals coming together to make things happen.

I am constantly amazed by the amount of good work such a small group of dedicated community members can accomplish. I received invaluable grant-writing and nonprofit management training that helped advance my career; and learned soil & water conservation techniques to protect & improve my property. V.I. RC&D matches resources [human & financial] to projects and helps grass-roots coomunity groups to organize and and run specific programs in our community.

I have only been involved with VIRC&D for a short period of time but I have found them always at the ready to assist in anyway possible. Their employees are always trying to help in anyway they can whether that is getting you in touch with the right people or assisting with grant writing. Programs like the East End trail that protects the nesting turtles on the beach and provides access to Jacks and Isaacs Bay have been at the forefront of their efforts.
