"While it is true that any one person cannot protect all of Mother Nature in this world, each one of us holds the power to contribute something—even a little something—to the greater good of the whole.
We decided, through the Salem Foundation Fund, to focus on the local level.
To be even a small part of helping with the preservation of local bodies of water, or a jewel like Botany Pond at the nearby nature sanctuary [Flanders Nature Center & Land Trust], has proven to be an incredibly rewarding and worthwhile endeavor for us.
The Foundation's invaluable service helps us to easily actualize our objectives of contributing on this local environmental level."
