As our organization grows, I want to create a strong technical foundation to better serve you, our members, and position ourselves to support a growing organization. We must create a strategy that supports the upgrade of our technology as it relates to internal communications as well as integrate as many of our technical services as possible. So, how does one do this when you are the only full-time employee? You ask for help. I was excited and relieved when we got the news that Common Impact and Fidelity Investments chose the Friends for the Fidelity El Program. This is a skills-based volunteer program, and we have been assigned a team of experts who will be helping us build a strong technical foundation. The partnership has just begun, so more updates to come!
And that's not all! Several more exciting projects are mentioned in the articles below, including our Texas Parks and Wildlife Recreation grant for Greer Island area improvements, a new amphitheater, and the development of a new educational program.
It is important to note that none of this would be possible without your membership support.
Thanks to YOU, we are growing and able to support the Nature Center in more ways than ever.
I hope you have a super summer. Be sure to come see our FIVE bison calves. They grow fast!
