We would like to develop a set of stories, and will welcome help developing the story and editing video about any one of these topics:
- One about organization's founding and growth over our first 10 years (now in our 11th year)
- One about the Ackermann family who donated land to become a nature preserve
- One about the van de Venne family to donated land to enlarge an ecologically significant local park (Theo van de Venne now serves on our board)
- One featuring some of our volunteers
For some time we have wanted to include stories to increase the appeal of our outreach materials, to strengthen fundraising, volunteer engagement, and reach of potential donors or sellers of land.
