MESSAGES FROM DOUG
Thanks to RLEP’s [Rappahannock League for Environmental Protection] efforts we can offer everyone the share-worthy, downloadable & customizable brochure about the biodiversity crisis, HNP and what each of us can do to “get started” and get ON THE MAP!
We are thrilled that we have so many entries on the Homegrown National Park® MAP representing acres and acres of land planted native!!
Big THANK YOU to all you early-adopters for taking the initiative to GET ON THE MAP!, for being ‘influencers’, for supporting the HNP call-to-action, for expressing your enthusiasm and encouraging others to get on the MAP. YOU cannot know how much your action and comments mean to Doug and me. We THANK YOU so much! HELP US SPREAD THE WORD!
