Background Berkshire Environmental Action Team (BEAT)

Background
Berkshire Environmental Action Team (BEAT) is a grassroots non-profit organization with a mission to protect the environment for wildlife, to support the natural world that sustains us all. We take on a broad scope of work to achieve our ambitious goals. Examples include: performing stormwater sampling and stream continuity surveys to eliminate pollution in our rivers and to improve aquatic passage, challenging peaking power plants and biomass plants to reduce air pollution and help the state actually meet its climate goals, and assisting in the implementation of composting and zero waste initiatives to reduce the amount of garbage wildlife has to contend with. BEAT is an equal opportunity organization. We work closely with all types of people and we stand against all forms of discrimination including those based upon age, ethnicity, gender, national origin, disability, race, color, veteran status, marital status, size, religion, sexual orientation, LGBTQ+ status, socioeconomic background, or system of belief.
