I have been a donor and board member of the Nature Generation for over 5 years. While I have served with other organizations, this one is truly making a difference in an area that effects all of us - the education of our next generation, and how each of them can make a difference. NatGen reaches out to our youth on multiple levels, and gets them interested in nature, and our environment. What could be more important?? People definitely need to consider this worthy cause - they ROCK!
