Review for Conservation Lands Foundation, Durango, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The leadership of the Foundation has been outstanding in their dogged pursuit of improving the management, funding and expansion of the National Landscape Conservation System and I'm sure they'll keep up the fantastic work. I enjoy exchanging ideas with them and working together on our mutual interests. In November 2008, I attended the first Friends Rendezvous in Arizona held by the Foundation. Staff and volunteers from national conservation and preservation groups as well as staff and volunteers from local Friends Groups in support of the Bureau of Land Management's National Landscape Conservation System gathered to network, learn and share ideas. The organization, planning and hard work by the Foundation paid off with several days of networking and education among the participants. Volunteers and staff at all levels were involved and there were opportunities for participants of all skill levels to learn something new every day and meet other people working at the same level on similar issues from other areas of the country.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Working with extremely committed and intelligent professionals who are dedicated to their work.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Empower more local Friends Groups at every National Monument and National Conservation Area in the National Landscape Conservation System, and work with new groups to keep the System of preserved and conserved lands growing.

Ways to make it better...

Each staff member had a clone - because there is much more work than staff.
