We have been able to move forward with our Strategic Plans for building into the future a stronger stance and broader outreach into our communities and helping to restore and rebuild our Traditional Ecological internships and move forward with making new films and increasing our curriculum to include more STEM/STEAM elements and partnerships.
I hope each of you is keeping well and safe and I wish you all a prosperous New Year.
With our deepest gratitude, we thank you to each and every one!
