    Project Hometree, a Great Project
    By - Roberta Ward Smiley - Founder and President
    This past month Omar, Miguel and Kyra Hagl cleaned and replaced trees here at La Reserva for Project Hometree. Above you can see the furrows the planting crew cut in the deep African grasses to prepare the 8 hectares for planting last year. This is a labor-intensive project, preparing the land and now the maintenance....

    11,800 and Counting
    By - Roberta Ward Smiley - Founder and President
    We finished the planting of Project Hometree on October 1st, 2010. The last week of planting was amazingly wet but the crew kept at it, covered in rain gear. I think this tropical storm was named Nicole. 8000 native tree seedlings representing 84 different species were planted over the past five weeks. In the photo above...

    Babies In The Ground!
    By - Roberta Ward Smiley - Founder and President of LRFF
    Yes, that’s right, there are now babies in the ground, trees that is. We have finished the tenth day of work on Project Hometree and have 3500 native seedlings, representing 84 species, in the ground. On Monday, Ross Nicholson, a LRFF board member in the United States, came by to plant 50 trees and see the progress. The...

    Come on Everybody, Let’s Get Planting!!
    By - Roberta Ward Smiley - Founder and President of LRFF
    We had many visitors at La Reserva during the month of July. One family, long time supporters of LRFF, came for two days of hiking in the reserve. On Friday, they revered Papa Loco, saw and heard many monkeys and birds. That night we all shared pizzas and played cards. This family came to La Reserva in Costa Rica for...

    Delicious Rain
    By - Mary Blizzard-Kelly - Founding member of LRFF
    The rains have begun in Costa Rica. It’s the perfect time for planting trees. Unfortunately the 8 hectares in this project can’t be planted until something is done about the African grasses that dominate the pasture. One option would be to spray the whole field with herbicides, but that would have a negative...

      EcoChuck It's great to see how my donations are being used. I do believe that reforestation is one of the best solutions to global warming and restoration of many species.

    THE RETURN OF THE WHITE-FACED MONKEY TO LA RESERVA
    By - Mary Blizzard-Kelly - Founding member of LRFF
    Ten years ago La Reserva was nearly all pasture land. Natural reforestation has allowed most of the property to once again become home to a wide variety of flora and fauna that needed the food and protection provided by forest and was absent in pastures. It has been exciting to watch the return of local and migrating birds...

    The Avatar Experience
    By - Roberta Ward Smiley - President and Founder, LRFF
    The Avatar Experience Two weeks ago, today, we experienced Avatar in a 3-D cinema. It was amazing and blew me away. I felt as though I were “in” the movie. Walking along the Hometree’s branches was as if I were back home in the top of La Reserva’s own Hometree, Papa Loco, the giant Ceiba (Kapok) tree. At this...
