Projects

We are committed to including both international and U.S. based projects including a few that are local enough for our members to have hands on several times throughout the year.

Below are the projects we are supporting this year with brief overviews and contact information. Don't hesitate to get in touch with the contact person for any project you might want to learn more about or participate with.
