    El Farallon, Good News and More Good News
    By - Roberta Ward Smiley - President and Founder, La Reserva Forst Foundation
    Thanks to your generosity the “Preserving El Farallon Natl. Monument” forest preservation project was funded this past August. Many employees from Eli Lilly donated during the last month, really amazing. Last week, after we received the final disbursement from GlobalGiving for this project we called the Lopez...

    Song of the Jungle
    By - Mary Blizzard - Secretary of LRFF/US
    The vision many people have of Costa Rica is that of tranquil beaches alongside massive areas of uninterrupted jungle. Although there are indeed many beautifully forested areas in the country, the fact is that cattle farming and development have destroyed much of the original forest cover. The preservation of existing...

    Closer and Closer
    By - Mary Blizzard - Founding member of LRFF
    We are very close to our goal on this project which will protect over 110 acres of forest. The project also supports the Lopez family in their work as guardians of the ancient petroglyphs along the river which runs through these trees. Both the forest and the petroglyphs are treasures well worth preserving!  Perhaps...

    Summer in the Forest
    By - Mary Blizzard - Founding member of LRFF
    It’s summer right now in Costa Rica, the dry season. It’s a great time to witness the difference between forested areas and areas that have been cleared of trees. Forested areas stay cool under the shade of the tall trees, underneath the leaf cover on the forest floor there is still a dampness to the ground. Out...

    Indigenous Memories
    By - Mary Blizzard - Founding member of LRFF
    January brought us exciting news, a large donation of $1900 was made to this project leaving only $1373 for its completion. It’s my sincere hope that we will reach that goal in the next few months. I’ve promised my grand-nieces and nephews a trip to this site when they come visit me in Costa Rica. I want to...

    THIS IS MONUMENTAL
    By - Roberta Ward Smiley - Founder and President
    El Farallon National Monument preservation project ties in with the work we are doing with the Maleku Indian tribe because of the petroglyphic images displayed on the high bluff alongside the river within the Lopez brothers farm where the national monument is contained. Please see the accompanying photo of a petroglyph...

    Feliz Navidad
    By - Mary Blizzard-Kelly - Founding member of LRFF
    The holidays approach, a time in which we contemplate finding the right gift to give to each of those we love. Often times we find ourselves wondering just what we can give to the child who already has a room full of toys or to a friend whose home is filled with every gadget imaginable. Make this the year in which you give...

    El Farallon National Monument
    By - Roberta Ward Smiley - President and Founder
    This year in Costa Rica we have had the La Niña rather than El Niño. La Niña equals = much rain. We’ve been buried in rain this year. So much that the Lopez family is unable to enter or leave their property via vehicle. After posting this project on Global Giving many people called wanting to go...

    Give Them a Hand
    By - Mary Blizzard-Kelly - Founding member of LRFF
    We are dedicated at La Reserva to supporting local peoples and the forests on their land. It is an unfortunate fact that many families are tempted to sell parcels covered with native trees to developers because they have no other way to generate income from forested land. The Lopez family is one example of these forces at...
