Please join me in supporting the Cal-Wood Education Center, a Boulder County non-profit that has provided environmental education to hundreds of thousands of our community's kids and families at its beautiful mountain site in Jamestown.
I joined the Cal-Wood board of directors in 2017 as the culmination of over 25 years of supporting and participating in this amazing organization. I am especially proud of Cal-Wood for its pioneering work in breaking down barriers to nature and the CO mountains, especially for bilingual learners as part of its ongoing staff development and instruction - one of the only outdoor education organizations in the country to do so, . The current focus on reaching out to the Latinx community and providing opportunities for toda la familia, with camping and educational programs, scholarships, through an intergenerational approach is especially important.
Due to the pandemic, Cal-Wood has had to cancel all school programs and summer camps. They have adapted and pivoted to continue to serve our community, but still, they have lost 70% of their annual revenue and more than 50% of their staff.
Right now, Cal-Wood needs our support - and I am committed to ensuring that Cal-Wood survives this year. Please consider a donation to this organization that is so close to my heart.
Our Mountain, Our Cal-Wood.
