    Thank You All So Much
    By - Roberta Ward Smiley - Founder and President

    Behind the Scenes at LRFF
    By - Mary Blizzard - Founding member of LRFF
    When I worked for a large school district I was continually struck by the fact that the day-to-day operations of each of the schools was made possible by their clerical staff. It was the folks sitting at their computers who kept things functioning at a level that allowed teachers to create a functional learning environment...

    THE BIRTHDAY GIFT
    By - Roberta Ward Smiley - Founder and President
    Those of you who have donated to this project will know that I was able to buy a used, desktop iMac this past September. I cannot express how much the larger screen has helped my eyes not to mention productivity. A few months ago I was interested in just how many hours I have logged on as founder and president of the La...

    And So This is Christmas
    By - Mary Blizzard-Kelly - Founding member of LRFF
    At La Reserva 2010 has been a busy year. Over 12,000 trees have been planted and a whole host of new projects are in the works - the most exciting being the work we’re doing to help the native Maleku regain some of their ancestral lands so they can be reforested. Hundreds of hours of work have gone into this project,...

Since my old laptop is on it’s last leg we offered to buy the new/used desktop for $800. David accepted the offer and brought the beautiful computer over last week,...

    Cyberspace = More Forests
    By - Mary Blizzard-Kelly - Founding member of LRFF
    There is much to be grateful for at La Reserva: the life-sustaining rains that have begun to fall once more, the recent planting of the Increasing Tenorio Volcano Forest project, the creation of new projects that will help us move toward our goal of planting as many as 100,000 trees this year. We find much joy in our...

    DOING MUCH WITH LITTLE
    By - Mary Blizzard-Kelly - Founding member of LRFF
    The work of La Reserva is done on a shoestring. Nevertheless we continue to grow and plant more trees. Two years ago we planted 1,000 trees, last year we planted 10,000! The work done with local school kids is but one example of the way we have begun to educate the local population about the importance of native...

    HOMETREE INVADED BY SCREAMING MASS OF FLESH!!
    By - Roberta Ward Smiley - President and Founder, LRFF
    This past December the local biological corridor council for Lake Arenal and Tenorio Volcano received a grant from the United Nations Small Grant Program. Since the council didn’t have non-profit status as yet LRFF has acted as an “umbrella” for them and is administering the funds. Part of the agreement is that LRFF...
