  • "On many occasions, River Network has provided much needed facilitation services and technical assistance at little or no cost. For example, during the BP oil disaster, their Southeast organizer assisted us in facilitating a meeting of NGOs from across the Gulf to develop a Gulf-wide collaboration focused on an agreed "restoration" agenda. That collaboration continues to work to implement the restoration agenda developed at that meeting. River Network is very responsive to member needs and provides important technical assistance and training to nonprofit groups."
