Review for River of Words, Berkeley, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I'm a professional nature writer and a long-time enthusiast of River of Words (ROW). In its early years, I worked for International Rivers Network where ROW got its start, and was fortunate to work events in San Francisco and Washington. D.C. when the kids were celebrated and honored for their work. One year, I interviewed all the kids, and their positive and passionate attitudes were awe inspiring. I can easily say that ROW is my favorite kid-friendly environmental and art organization.

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

witnessing an increased confidence in the kids involved. I've talked to many of them who told me that the contest changed their lives.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About once a year

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?


Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & I worked with ROW when it was in its infancy and saw firsthand how it inspired kids to honor their creativity while learning about the environment.
