Tributes ... following in their footsteps

As a not for profit charitable cooperative, MTRI receives donations from local philanthropists who want to honour cherished loved-ones who have made a difference in their lives. Some gifts are memorials, while others are tributes in honour of living friends and family. MTRI offers tax deductible receipts for all donations over $20. 

Already several gifts have been received, and in this section of our website we provide bios of the loved ones for which those donations were made. If you would like to make a donation to MTRI in honour of a friend, fellow naturalist, or family member, please contact Wendy at MTRI. She will all be happy to help you with your request.
