My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for National Wildlife Federation, Reston, VA, USA
I read Ranger Rick as a child and as an adult became interested in native plants for landscaping around the house, whereupon the Backyard Wildlife Habitat program people found me. They helped me with my native plant landscaping, I certified my yard as a Backyard Wildlife Habitat, and I enjoyed them so much that I became a Habitat Steward myself and began helping others. After a few years of volunteering in this regard I became too busy with my family to continue, and I began donating instead. When my daughter was old enough my folks got her a subscription to Ranger Rick, Jr, and the circle was complete. I had no idea the magazine I loved so much as a child was affiliated with the native plant outreach I love as an adult. NWF is an organization making a significant and genuine positive impact on the ecosystems they care about so much, and they do it one child, one yard, and one ecosystem at a time. Thank you NWF, I am a loyal supporter for life.
