La Reserva Forest Foundation
La Reserva Forest Foundation is a non-profit volunteer, educational and scientific charitable organization dedicated to the recovery and preservation of indigenous tropical rain forests in Costa Rica. It began nine years ago on a 100 acre dairy farm overlooking Lake Arenal, in the province of Guanacaste (north central) Costa Rica. In our early years we planted tree bridges to connect the few forest islands that remained on our farm, noting that animals could then move from one stand of trees to other forested areas without exposing themselves to predators on the ground. This inspired us in 1998, to allow forests to regenerate naturally on the entire property, creating a private forest reserve.
