You might think it's all fun and games here behind the scenes at the Conservancy. Between building fences at MERA and watching bats at Pete's Pond, we certainly DO have our share of fun. But we work hard, too! Just last weekend we had a meeting to discuss fundraising roles and strategies. Boring, right? Honestly, see the photographic evidence below of what a snoozefest it was! Huckleberry pie, baby tambourines, and lots of smiles. What a labor of love!
Because the old adage still rings true: a board who eats homemade dessert together, STAYS together! Contact us to learn more about becoming a board member!
And yet...in the face of a drought and groundwater decline Pete's Pond is rapidly disappearing!!
Please click HERE to link to our GoFundMe campaign to help us raise enough money to purchase a solar-powered pump to continue to provide habitat for wildlife, educational opportunities for out local school kids, and semi-public space where native plants can thrive. EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS! Thank you to those who have already donated toward the cause, and to the rest of you for your generosity.
