Advancing the use of technology to answer an age-old question. One of the biggest questions in spider monkey conservation in...
In February. 2012 the Los Arboles Homeowners Association voted to establish the Los Arboles Non Profit Committee to create short term and ongoing projects in the community supported by a charitable giving account. Our mandate is to promote and financially support conservation, ecological and environmental protection, indigenous educational opportunties, health care, and cultural opportunities through theatre and art. In addition we support local animal rescue and rehabilitation organizations.
Members network in the community to find worthy projects that require a written grant application. Once the project is approved by the Non Profit Committee and the Vigilance Committee, we monitor project compliance and expenditures. Any owner at LAT can suggest ideas for grant projects. We welcome your ideas and suggestions.
