Review for North American Bear Center, Ely, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The North American Bear Center (NABC) is a top notch non-profit organization whose passion for what they do shines through in the outstanding quality of their work. The NABC has educated people across the world about the true behaviors of black bears & has helped to dispel many myths about this misunderstood animal. The NABC has also teamed up with teachers to develop a fabulous educational outreach program to take the things taught at the NABC into school classrooms. The materials include a curriculum map, lesson plans, interdisciplinary ideas, as well as black bear boxes to provide a “hands on” experience for the students. I am grateful that I have had the opportunity to volunteer for this organization for the past several years, as every time I am there it is an enriching experience in which I learn something new!

Review for International Wolf Center, Ely, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Hello, my name is Deb and my involvement with the International Wolf Center has crossed through several roles. I began as a "general member of the public" by visiting the Center in Ely, MN. I then found out about the many engaging and educational programs that were offered, which of course led to enrollment! :) My enjoyment of all that I learned and experienced by participating in the programs fueled a desire to become even more involved, so I became a donor and volunteer. The Center's fact based, unbiased approach to forward the mission of "advancing the survival of wolf populations by teaching about wolves, their relationship to wild lands and the human role in their future" is something I fully support. I am currently showing this support by acting as a member of the board.

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

how much I have learned as a result of its quality staff members, educational programs, and literature.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

help find ways to reach an even broader audience.

Role:  Board Member & Educational program participant, behavioral observation team member, volunteer newsletter editor, etc .
