This #GivingTuesday we’re raising money for Berkshire Environmental Action Team and your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate
$5 or $500. Every little bit helps. Thank you for your support.
BEAT is working with you to protect the environment for wildlife in support of the natural world that sustains us all. We work on a shoestring budget, so every dollar you donate goes a LONG way!
We have 3 main program areas all based on a solid foundation of science:
Outreach & Education: We believe the environment's best protection is a well informed public. We keep you informed about environmental issues through our website; free, weekly e-newsletter with environmental news, calendar, & public notices; and monthly Pittsfield Green Drinks vitrual gathering with a speaker.
Watchdogging: Through the No Fracked Gas in Mass program, we are an environmental watchdog working with you to ensure environmental laws are enforced. Keep an eye out for our new Shave the Peak initiative next year, looking to transition away from polluting fossil fuel power plants.
Stewardship: We train & work with wildlife trackers to asses & protect interconnected wildlife habitat and decrease the impact of roads on wildlife movement, and to monitor our region's waterways.
As always, thank you! It's your support that keeps us going.

Provide feedback on Mass Save’s 3-Year Efficiency Plan
Mass Energy Efficiency Advisory Council (EEAC) Listening Sessions
The planning process for the 2022-2024 Three-Year Energy Efficiency Plan for the Mass Save energy efficiency programs has begun via public comment listening sessions. Public comment is very important to the Energy Efficiency Advisory Council (EEAC) as it highlights the energy efficiency needs of Massachusetts residents and businesses which helps direct where the Council should focus. The Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources (DOER) wants to hear from residents, businesses, and industry stakeholders on how Mass Save can best serve them through the energy efficiency programs.
If you've gone through the Mass Save process, or tried to and came across roadblocks, now is a great time to let them know where there's room for improvement!
