We're sorry about the delay due to rain, but the rescheduled Membership Picnic is now less than a month away!

We're once again collecting RSVPs and if you RSVP'd to the previous date, you'll need to do so again (sorry). Remember to include your license plate number so we can cover your admission into the park.

It's been a while, so in case you've forgotten the details...

Your contributions to CIR are more important than ever. Here's why:

Our federal funding for restoration is facing massive budget cuts and redirection. For example, the Department of the Interior (which manages the National Park Service and the Fish andWildlife Service) is facing a 12% budget cut and a reallocation of their remaining funding to infrastructure and energy development. Please, donate now to secure a ticket to the event and secure a future for habitat restoration and environmental education. Become a member now!
