|PIC administers and
facilitates common-sense conservation projects by matching specific
tasks with appropriate organizations and by utilizing the skills, energy, and
abilities of diverse groups through hands-on participation. Active
involvement creates ownership; by actually doing
participants become part of the project.
|When at all possible, PIC structures projects so that
individuals volunteer and donate their time, transportation, and some
equipment. Then, after successful completion, PIC makes a monetary donation to
the non-profit organization the volunteers represent. This formulation
provides much needed funding to community organizations and augments local
economies while accomplishing worthwhile conservation projects.
|We also believe that
enhances all projects
and produces a deeper level of understanding.
Understanding pushes the inability to see another's perspective aside and
allows the development of positive relationships to begin. Successful
projects accomplish much more than the 'good you see on the ground'.
