The Nature Conservancy is an organization that relies heavily on its volunteers. Gleaned from is Autumn 2007 magazine (p. 62) are these ideas for keeping and using knowledgeable volunteers:
- Make them responsible for specific tasks.
- Give them some authority, if they have the correct knowledge to make good decisions.
- Help them fall in love with what they do. If they love what they do, they do it well and for a long time.
