Jeff Ramsey, Director of Partners in Conservation in collaboration with the Columbus Zoo,  presents a review of the work of the organization in Rwanda. ENGC's annual contribution of seed packets and monetary donations for Seeds of Friendship  benefits this program and provides an alternative means for Rwanda families to earn wages that are conservation friendly.

at the Meadows Pavilion in Brecksville Metroparks for “Brunch with the Birds” and a summary of the projects

Elementary, purchasing recycling bins for the stadium area and building two birdhouses and a bat house

that are installed behind the school building.
