Join Ethan Shirley and faculty leader Mindy Matice for what should be a wonderful night:

Environment, education and development in rural Brazil

We're building a school in Brazil, come to our send-off gathering at Burns Park!

Mindy Matice & Ethan Shirley and a group of dedicated students and volunteers will be traveling down to build a school, community center and field station on a private nature reserve in the rural Brazilian Pantanal.

Come hear us talk about our plans to incorporate education, community and scientific research into a sustainable facility to promote conservation and development in this little-known region. And, if you feel so inclined, help us fund the project, too!

There will be free desserts and coffee, wine and samba, music and cards, so please bring the whole family.
Donations are not required, but having fun is!

When? Where? And all that stuff?
