My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Berkshire Environmental Action Team, Pittsfield, MA, USA
I am a grad student that partnered with BEAT and another student to fulfill a requirement for my program -- The experience was so much more than just a requisite! My background is certainly not based in invasive plants, so working on the development of a text guide and outreach presentation for Hardy Kiwi made me a little nervous and hesitant at first. That quickly faded after meeting with Jane and Elia. Both were very responsive to any concerns we had going into and throughout the project and were flexible with meeting our needs since neither of us live in Pittsfield. Jane knew exactly what she wanted for her end product, but she also allowed for us to take creative freedom. I found the responsiveness and clear vision to be extremely helpful during our project because it left out any guess work about the final outcome. We knew exactly what direction we needed to be headed in every step of the way. Their concise, open communication and enthusiasm allowed us to achieve a great outcome easily and effectively. I learned a great wealth of knowledge about an area of conservation biology that I was not familiar with. I am excited to see where this project goes in the future and can’t wait to hear more from the next group that continues to work on this project with this wonderful organization!
Thank you Monica! The handbook you and Lisa created is SO helpful. And I am so proud of the two of you presenting at the Mass Land Conservation Conference! Thank you so much!
