Seth came into the office today and said "It's already the THIRD month of the year!" My heart beat quickened..."What?! Already?! How can this be?". Well, folks, it's true. We are already into the Madness of March.
First, I want to thank everyone that donated last year, and everyone that has already started giving this year. Your gifts are critical to the work we are doing. What is that work? Restoring a critical northwest prairie habitat. Your financial gifts and labor are helping us put plants in the ground, prepare land for future restoration, and educate students and community members about the prairie. What else? Your gifts are allowing us to plan and implement new programs for environmental leadership. We already have 36 college students signed up for our summer program and we are currently taking applications for spring and summer Restoration Internships. We are equipping young leaders with knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to be effective in our ever changing world.
Thank you for contributing $50,650 in 2011, and many thanks to the 23 donors that have already contributed $3,960 in 2012.
Looking forward to another year in this grand adventure we like to call Pacific Rim Institute :)
