    Thank You So Much, Again!
    By - Roberta Ward Smiley - CEO and founder
    Thanks to all of you and your amazing generosity this project is now fully funded! LRFF paid Mariano a check last December for the donations received to date. His wife, Alba, had just passed away and he needed funds to pay for her burial and memorial service. Now we are able to pay him the balance of donations to the...

    Outstanding Forest
    By - Roberta Ward Smiley - CEO and founder
    I’ve known Mariano and Alba for almost 30 years now, from the first days after we arrived in the Tilarán area. They were a young couple in love and the most memorable thing I remember about them from those days was what a great dance couple they were. I would watch them at the local dances, whirling with feet...

    Arias Family = Oxygen Farmers
    By - Robert Pearson - Executive Assistant
    As a newcomer to the Lake Arenal area of Costa Rica, I can certainly vouch for the area's beauty. The setting of the lake high in a valley, surrounded by magnificent volcanic cones is something to behold. But the rich forests of Tenorio volcano belie what is severely lacking from the rest of the area in favor of cattle...

    Helping the Monge Family to Help Us All
    By - Charlotte Hallaways - Executive Assistant
    In February of 2011 La Reserva was able to pay the Monge family one years worth of environmental services as a result of your most valued support for this project. We need only $500 more to pay them for their continued service tin 2012. Despite the constant struggle with developers, financial and personal hardships the...

    A New Opportunity
    By - Roberta Ward Smiley - Founder and CEO, LRFF
    We only need another $139 to fund this project and pay the Monge’s their payments for environmental services this year. A great new opportunity has presented itself. We’ve had a 7000+ hectare existing forest project developed for the carbon market since 2008. Mariano Monge is a participant in this project but...

    Not Far To Go On This Project
    By - Roberta Ward Smiley - Founder and CEO, LRFF
    This project is very close to funding. On the project page you will read $845 remaining to fund it but because we had funding left over last year from donations received over and above, actually there is only $281 needed to fund this project. We took the excess donations from last year and added them forward to help fund...

    Inspection Time and Looking Good
    By - Rebecca Bell - Executive Administrative Assistant-LRFF/CR
    Two weeks ago we carried out our six month inspection of the forest and it is incredibly healthy thanks to the support of our donors, whose money goes towards environmental service payments for the carbon that it is sequestering. Payments for environmental services to the Monge’s for the habitat and CO2 sequestration...

    Help a Family and Save a Rainforest
    By - Kerry Smith - Freelance writer for LRFF
    Mariano Monge, his wife Alba, and their children perform an incredible service: They maintain 14 hectares of tropical rainforest, protecting it from the rampant deforestation we're all too familiar with. That's 1,506,947 square feet of our precarious environmental future sustained for the benefit of us all. The Monges'...

    LET’S SAVE IT AGAIN THIS YEAR!
    By - Roberta Ward Smiley - President and Founder, La Reserva Forst Foundation
    Some of you may remember this project being up on the Global Giving website last year. It was funded this past February and we were able to pay the Monge family one year of “payments for environmental services” for the CO2 their primary forest is absorbing and storing. The income has been a great help to the...
