Growing our staff – The interest in our work has been incredible and we need people that are vetted, trained, and prepared to deliver excellent programming for our community.

Developing our organization –  We need to make sure we have the systems and infrastructure in place to maintain our organization as we grow.

Sustaining our nature-based learning and community-building programs – We have launched a number of  incredibly successful programs that need additional resources to ensure long term sustainability.
