La Reserva Forest Foundation (LRFF) in Tilaran/Costa Rica.... founded by Roberta Ward Smiley and Daniel Spreen Wilson and helped by their local VolunteerTeam and many Volunteers from all over The Globe to restore and preserve the Rainforest in Costa Rica. Roberta, Daniel and their volunteers show us a passionate care & love for Mother Earth and their grand enthusiasm in planting young trees to create this brandnew Rainforest and adding their contribution for the " Good " of Planet Earth! Not only having Heart for Mother Nature but also for their inhabitants in many ways! Connected with LRFF and their great Mission some years ago via The Love Foundationgroup and wishing to them lots of more young trees from People all over the Globe to keep the lungs of Planet Earth clean and all its good effects!

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!

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.
