La Reserva was a fantastic experience and should be highly recommended to anyone interested in biodiversity, jungle hikes, or just nature in general. Roberta is a fantastic guide and she really knows her wildlife and plants. Thanks for the tour and alowing me to partake in the ecological restoration efforts at La Reserva!

We visited La Reserva last winter, being ourselves plant nursery owners. We were touched by Roberta and Daniel's authenticity and great respect of nature. These leaders understand the fragility of life and their responsability in contributing to a better world. Let's give them our support!

Besides having a wonderful tour and learning experience not only about trees and plants but also about the animals that depend on preserving our natural resources such as our native plants. It is really an amazing work of art what Roberta and her husband have done to help Costa Rica, and mother earth. Therefore, they are really helping humanity. She has stimulated my wife, Jennifer, and me to do the same with. our land and taught us how to do it. It is amazing that within a year how our land has reforested and hopefully soon all the natural wildlife will be back.

I met Dan and Roberta thru a mutual friend who lives in Costa Rica. We had the pleasure of Roberta taking us on a tour of the reserve and showing us the diversity of flora and fauna in her backyard. Thru their hard work and dedication to the cause, their grass roots efforts are helping to restore the vital oxigen producing and carbon capturing abilities of tropical rain forests.
Hat's off to them and continued sucess in their future endeavors.

La Reserva Forest Foundation is a special project non only committed with nature but also people and their local economy.

They are working hard to restore native tropical forests by planting trees, educating people, inspiring donors and partnering with private and public landowners, giving
to many the opportunity to contribute to the positive change for our planet.

I've been happy to help support the work of LRFF. Roberta and Dan have dedicated themselves to reforestation and to the preservation of disappearing species, not for personal gain (in fact, they have put their own needs second to their work,) but for the greater good.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've seen the rapid rate at which reforestation occurs in the tropics - specifically on projects that Roberta and Dan have planted. It gives cause for hope.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

seek permanent funding for them that would allow them to continue and expand their work.

After one walk through the restored tropical forest with Roberta as guide, we were transformed and have committed ourselves to helping La Reserva grow and mature, just like the trees they plant. If a dozen people in powerful positions would take that walk, the world would be a different place.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

planning future strategy and governance concepts.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Establish a governance structure that would attract massive donations for this excellent cause.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the transformative effect of our tour through the regenerated forest with Roberta as a knowledgeable guide to describe the interdependencies and connectedness of a mature tropical forest. It was an ecological epiphany.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

dedicated, enthusiastic and knowledgeable, from all walks of life and background. In many ways the volunteers are quite different, but when viewing LRFF all sing the same hymn.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

evolve into a mature, well-founded organization with sufficient facilities and scope to become a world-class case example in how a dedicated group can work with the Earth to heal herself.

Ways to make it better...

LRFF had a permanent Resource Center as a hub for all of its diverse activities.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Sufficient sustainable funding for operations and new projects.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Tell all your contacts to add this to their emails: "Support reforestation - go to LRFF.org"
