That’s why PowellsWood has formed a special partnership in support of the Children’s Eternal Rainforest, a 55,000-acre reserve in Costa Rica that was created by the fundraising efforts of kids from around the globe and which protects some of Earth’s most biodiverse habitat. Like PowellsWood, Friends of the Children’s Eternal Rainforest supports nature education for kids and gives them the opportunity to get involved in protecting our world’s most important places.
Our partnership helps children understand that by providing habitat needed by birds and insects migrating through the Pacific Flyway where PowellsWood is located, this garden and the creatures in it are connected to a much larger world. (See diagram at right.)After all, many of the seasonal birds we see, like the Olive-sided Flycatcher and the Western Tananger, are on their way to the Children’s Eternal Rainforest and beyond!This entry was posted on 12/02/2013 in Northwest Gardening Blog by PowellsWood
