We’re mentioned in the STL Beacon:
If you can’t like an organization named Friends of the Children’s Eternal Rainforest, something is wrong. But the moniker is not whimsical. “The Children’s Eternal Rainforest is a 55,000 acre reserve in Costa Rica founded by the efforts of school children from around the world (44 countries and counting),” according to a press release.
The friends’ annual awareness and fundraising forum, “Wild About Conservation,” will take place from 6-9 p.m. April 23 at the Zoo’s Living World.
Refreshments and cocktails will precede a presentation by Thomas E. Lovejoy, scientist, explorer and founder of the Nature program on PBS. Desserts and coffee will follow.
While general admission to the forum is free, $50 VIP tickets include a private cocktail reception.
The Friends’ organization works to educate people about rainforest conservation while it supports efforts to protect and expand the Children’s Eternal Rainforest conservation project.
For more information or to purchase VIP tickets, please call 314-941-1257or go to the organization’s website at www.friendsoftherainforest.org.
