My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Berkshire Environmental Action Team, Pittsfield, MA, USA
BEAT is a highly effective environmental educator and advocate that couples a very small staff with a growing base of enthusiastic volunteers and makes a real difference to the quality of life in Western Massachusetts. One of our best examples of an energetic and dedicated area nonprofit, BEAT represents the interests of the citizens of our area and the natural amenities we love, often against corporate interests that would harm and exploit our environment for their own purposes. Its weekly newsletter provides information about environmental and conservation issues I often don’t see covered in other local media and its “boots on the ground” approach to training and environmental action ensures it a seat at the table when such issues are discussed. Berkshire County and the rest of Western Massachusetts are well served by its efforts.
