My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Bayou Land Conservancy, Houston, TX, USA
I came to Bayou Land Conservancy as an intern for Spring 2011. When I first started, I was pleasantly surprised to learn that the organization was responsible for preserving the natural beauty of a beautiful piece of property right in my own neighborhood! It has been truly inspiring to work beside staff that are so passionate about what they do. I have especially enjoyed going out into the field, getting to see for myself the land that will protected by easements for generations to come. As a volunteer, I also had the opportunity to lead at-risk Houston youth on nature walks and in an invasive species removal project. The "No Child Left Inside" education program is a fantastic way to get kids outside and thinking about water conservation and environmental stewardship.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Little Cypress Creek Preserve
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Increase funding for the "No Child Left Inside" program and get more kids out on our preserves.
Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)
Instilled in me a greater appreciation for the outdoors and introduced me to my new hobbies, hiking and bird-watching.
