Review for Berkshire Environmental Action Team, Pittsfield, MA, USA
BEAT works tirelessly to protect the environment in Berkshire County. They attend dozens of town meetings all year long (select board, conservation commission, zoning, and other meetings) to provide technical assistance on issues related to environmental regulations, wetlands regulations, and so forth. I have been involved with the fight against the NED pipeline project this past year and I could not have done it without Jane Winn from BEAT. She attends every meeting and supports each town as needed. They are front and center in the fight against the fracked gas pipelines proposed to cross our county, including many natural and protected areas. They have worked hard to educate concerned citizens and to act as a resource for timely and accurate information on these major proposed projects. I can't imagine Berkshire County without BEAT!
