Review for Voluntary Nature Conservancy, Randolph, NJ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been associated with VNC for 15 years. I have been a volunteer since the last 3 years or so. VNC has provided me with great learning opportunities and widened my knowledge of the environment. It is a great experience to be a part of VNC.

Review for Voluntary Nature Conservancy, Randolph, NJ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was 6 years old when I went on this birdwatching trip. That was just the beginning of my association with VNC. Then onwards most of my Sundays were spent in Nature. My love for Nature grew.

Then one day when I was in 2nd grade, VNC organised a snake education program in my school. I used to be scared of snakes. But that day I learnt things about them which changed my whole view of them. Snakes became interesting.

When I was in 3rd grade VNC began organising nature camps in my school.Those camps took me to some amazing places with my classmates. And when I was old enough my parents started sending me to VNC organised summer camps. All these camps took me to places like Jambugoda, Hingolgadh, Mithapur, Rann of Kutch, Nainital, Manali, Dalhousie, Barot Valley, Bir & Biling, Jayalgadh and so many other beautiful places.
That helped develop the passion for trekking and camping in me. I now have so many precious memories from these trips.
These trips made me more aware about the environment and my personal responsibilities. Not only my knowledge increased but i gained new experiences.
What VNC does is very integral to creating awareness about saving our environment. VNC initiatives like Greenathon, Crocodile Count, Reptile Education programs, OOSM, Anubhav have increased awareness among people.
And now as a volunteer, I see first hand how VNC is inspiring people to give back to Mother Nature. Kudos for that!!
And may this success for VNC go on and on....
