Allan Berkowitz is being honored for his work as Executive Director of Environmental Volunteers Founded in 1972, Environmental Volunteers (The EV) provides hands-on science and nature education through classroom-based programs, summer camps, and the EcoCenter at the Palo Alto Baylands. The organization’s goal is for children to learn about and be inspired by the natural world so that they will become responsible stewards of the Earth.

Allan’s leadership has resulted in an expansion of the numbers of schools and students reached, the transformation of the abandoned Sea Scout building to a vibrant EcoCenter open to the public, and the development of a resource web site for teachers, called Science by Nature.

The Kiwanis Angel Award is given to an individual in the Palo Alto area who has had a significant positive impact on children and youth. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Kiwanis International/UNICEF initiative, the Eliminate Project, to eliminate the tetanus that kills mothers and 60,000 newborns in the developing world.
