    “I just wanted to thank YOU for an absolutely magical day yesterday. I haven’t been privileged to go to the Conservancy this year until now. There is always something new developing, and the place has such a lovely ambiance. I thought the activities were fun and interesting for the kids and the ADULTS, the fire was so pleasant and relaxing…The activities WERE truly great. Your interns do a fantastic job of communicating their passion for the environment. You do a wonderful job –Jess and Cheryl had a super day too.”
