I have volunteered with the Wyland Foundation on several occasions and have always had a positive experience. First off, the Wyland Foundation is an exceptional organization with a clear vision to educate the general public on the importance of clean water, healthy oceans and water conservation. To support this vision, they've developed a number of really great programs to educate and engage people; from children to parents and teenagers to teachers.
The staff are also incredible. They've knowledgeable and - more importantly - passionate about what they do. The Wyland Foundation wouldn't have the same impact or be what it is today without the people driving the message.
If you're interested in volunteering or supporting a non-profit that can truly have an impact on the world, I would highly suggest looking at the Wyland Foundation.
I've volunteered at a few Wyland Foundation events. The environmental message is well conveyed through various fun, kid-friendly activities such as painting a mural. The staff from the foundation are all great and are genuinely passionate about their work.
I volunteered at the Wyland Living Green Fair at the Port of Long Beach's Green Port festival. The festival showcased organizations that are actively involved in making a positive difference in the health of our planet's environment. The Wyland Foundation brought it's mobile learning center to the event and had booths staffed with friendly and knowledgeable guides. Wyland, the internationally acclaimed marine wildlife artist painted a beautiful mural with children who attended the event. The food, weather, music and especially the community of energetic and passionate people helped to make this a meaningful and fun event.
Fun and educational atmosphere. Great music. Festive decor and great natural scenery from the Ocean Insitute in Dana Point. Painting activity with Wyland and the kids provided a wonderful learning opportunity for them. Nice variety of food and beverages. The Wyland staff were professional and personable. Good set-up of silent auction and auction. Enviromental message clear and throughout. Great event.
