AHLF Fundraising Campaign: Brick and Mortar Education Office

Our field trips are increasing once again in popularity. We are excited to have all our students back on campus with us. We are expanding our program offerings for the visitors that have found us to daily lessons of nature.  

 

All this is exciting, and extremely fulfilling for our entire team. Its getting a little tight inside. We are 2-3 people per office and plan to move our education department closer to the action. We need to expand our brick-and-mortar office space for more programming offerings to be implemented.  The space for storing all the educational needs is great. As “the Aggua Family” grows so must our creative spaces for teachers and administrators to design the magic that our mission asserts to achieve: to energize our community through education and outreach to preserve the Agua Hedionda Lagoon as an accessible and healthy watershed. I think we all can realize the enormous benefits of nature for our mental wellbeing, from a more vibrant active lifestyle, to improving your daily mood. Nature helps you take time out and feel more relaxed while helping you to meet and get to know new people in beautiful settings.

 

We invite you to join us in our journey to accomplish our vision to be Stewards of the Watershed as we inspire future generations, so we all have access to a healthy lagoon. A safe place in nature…for all.
