Pacific Rim Institute for Environmental Stewardship

PRI promotes the idea that humans, individually and collectively, are stewards, or caretakers, of this Earth, and that as stewards we have the call and responsibility to maintain our home on behalf of others.

Volunteers coming out in October & November

On October 29 & November 5, volunteers will be joining us for two days of prairie cleanup and planting.

Volunteers, including local community members and Navy volunteers from the local base, will sweep several of our fields for large rocks and debris.  This process will make the fields safe for mowing with our tractor.  Mowing is an important management tool to reduce the spread of non-native plants.

We will be sure to post pictures of these work days in a few weeks!

Best Regards,

Holly M. Kress

Partnering with local scrap metal company

A neighbor approached us not too long ago to buy some fencing (we have been giving away all the fencing that we take down on the property for suggested donations).  When he saw all the scrap metal in the prairie, he offered to take some of it away for us.  He owns a scrap metal company right here in town.  He offered to come and fish through the piles himself and cart any usable material out on his truck.  A financially positive venture for him, and a restorative venture for us - requiring virtually no staff time and resources on our part.

We still need funds to help dispose of the rest of the materials that can't be salvaged, but we are grateful for this local partnership!
