Thank you

December 05, 2019

Now that our campaign has ended, we want to say Thank You to our donors for supporting this project to help the Ecosystem Health Program grow. While we did not reach our goal, the support we saw for our program is very exciting, and we are eager to see what the future holds for our program and students.
