    Closing out the Project 38 Hectares
    By - Matthew Lee - President, LRFF-US
    We at La Reserva want to take this moment to thank all of the donors who contributed support to the project “38 Hectares of Valuable Resources for the Maleku”. Unfortunately this project has been posted on the Global Giving website for several years now and we are no closer to getting the project funded. At this...

    What...Failure is a Feat?
    By - Roberta Ward Smiley - CEO and Founder
    Failure is a feat. It’s so true; we’ve learned this at La Reserva Forest Foundation and we’re proud to share our story, especially if it can help another non-profit realize what a valuable experience it is to “fail”. Our first reforestation projects were informal affairs. We would collect...

    The Maleku Wait
    By - Roberta Ward Smiley - CEO and Founder
    We had a distinguished visitor in March, Ron Jones. Ron learned about La Reserva almost a year ago and contacted us, interested in partnering with us to help plant even more trees. All of our contact was via internet and it wasn't until the end of February that he was able to make the trip to Costa Rica from Florida to...

    Let's Save These People
    By - Roberta Ward Smiley - CEO and founder
    Our last progress report recounted the great success we’ve seen in tree development in just two years time at Marvin’s 14 hectares which were planted in December of 2011.

    Still Chillin'
    By - Roberta Ward Smiley - CEO and founder
    Still Chillin’ Marvin is still crying the blues because of his dire financial situation. He called again about one month ago wondering how his project is doing, how many donations it has received. This always worries me, especially since he has already been looking into cutting some of the trees in the existing forest...

    Oh, Those Cows!
    By - Charlotte Hallaways - Executive Assistant
    Since our last report, the problem with the neighbor cows persisted. The cows were so accustomed to using the land that Jimmy would find them waiting at the fence to be let in! We eventually had to take action and called in the police to gently remind the neighbor he couldn’t use the land anymore. Luckily they...
