Where is the creek in the picture to the left?


I just want to thank all the volunteers that have helped clean up the creek for the past 10 months.  The two trash dams have been removed along with the invasive Japanese honey suckle, mimosa trees, brambles, wild grape vines, and still in the process of removing the 3 foot diameter fallen oak tree.

It is a great joy to hear, see and meditate by the creek again.  I had no idea the creek had so many fish.

 Thank you for your donations!

So far about $7,000 of our $30,000 goal has come in.  So that means $3,500 has been raised for the outdoor classroom and community center. If you have not done so please support our work by becoming a member or making a donation.

Message From the Founder

Almost 20 years ago when this picture was taken it was well below freezing, icicles had formed on my grass skirt while skiing in the Eskimo Escapades.   Notice the well bundled person to my right. One does crazy things for charity.    For this one I agreed to ski in a dry suit for $500, a wet suit $1000, a swim suit for $1500, and a costume of the employees' choosing for $2000.    


Send us your crazy ideas of what you would like me to do next year for the Sustainable Future Center fund raiser.  No pain or humiliation is too great to save the planet!
