In 2007 the Foundation received a grant dedicated to constructing a visitors house in Los Toros - in Spanish they call it a Pension. Construction plans have been completed and land has been acquired and we are ready to start building. Dee and Al Schlecht are leading a fund drive to raise $5,000.00 to complete the funding for this project. Below is information about the Pension.
