Review for River of Words, Berkeley, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

River of Words provides a wealth of curriculum resources to teachers to support environmental education through art and writing. I found out about their amazing resources and student art and poetry contest in 1998 and have been sharing the wealth with my students ever since. River of Words is a trailblazer in Environmental Education. Their international contest is extraordinary in the ways that it touches and inspires students and teachers around the world. Their books are treasures for the classroom and I share them each year with a new group of students to inspire THEIR vision for preserving, conserving and treasuring our natural resources around the world.

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

The inspiration that students literally draw from their books of student art and poetry about water resources. My student artwork is grounded in the rich tradition that River of Words compiles from children around the world to celebrate a world of beauty.

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

sharing the beautiful illustrations by children around the globe "picturing" the treasures of the natural world.

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

helpful, thoughtful, and passionate about the natural world.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

bring the world to awareness about living sustainably and the importance of preserving our natural resources. They would create a world of artists and writers to preserve, conserve, and share resources responsibly.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About once a year
