On Friday the PLF crew visited Knar Primary School to put on a special scavenger hunt, to celebrate the conclusion of their three month long investigation into the world’s habitats.

By Travis Thompson, PLF Board of Directors

Year in Photos

by Lori Carlson

We are definitely running a little late on re-capping this year!  It was a veritable whirlwind of activity. A lot of new programs were lifted off at existing projects and a new school was brought on board.
