Review for Canopy, Palo Alto,, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've volunteered for Canopy for over 10 years and keep coming back because of the benefit they provide to the community and because of the quality of the people associated with the organization. Their efforts to enhance the urban forests of Palo Alto and East Palo Alto are widely recognized appreciated by the citizenry of both communities. One of the major projects I supported was the planting of over 1200 trees in East Palo Alto since 2007. This has provided both an aesthetic benefit and the well-documented many environmental and economic benefits associated with planting trees.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

many ways. Not only have I been able to be a "hands-on" volunteer, I've been able see the inner workings of the organization through participation on the board and on various committees.

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

working with a wide-range of community volunteers including many youth and service club groups and realizing the positive effect the organization has on local communities.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

dedicated, enthusiastic, and having fun planting trees and doing tree care work.
