Board of Directors

A message from founding director, Sue Jacox: 

"I want children to have what I have and cherish myself.  Every day I want them to look at the mountains and the sky and feel inspired and excited.  I want them to love Nevada and the earth and to feel a part of their community.  I want them to have the skills and the will to make positive choices and to recognize that every choice and every action can make a difference.  And finally, I want them to be stimulated by lifelong learning and nurtured by a sense of connection to the natural world."
