Friday Fundraising Gala - Film Program
The Friday night gala fundraiser will benefit Mendocino Land Trust’s summer internship program. This program has trained 12 college students over six years, and these students, with their boundless energy and enthusiasm, have become integral to the summer project work of Mendocino Land Trust. The films we have chosen for this event give life to the types of projects Mendocino Land Trust interns participate in. The results of their work have produced lasting benefit to our community. Contributions made at this fundraiser will help to provide additional students with the opportunity to learn from this life-changing experience.
"There is little I can do to describe how much my experiences this summer have meant to me. Compared to the, at times, frustratingly insular experience of academia, my time at the Mendocino Land Trust felt refreshingly real. I felt as though I was actually contributing something concrete to the world, and I could see the results of my work appearing around me as the summer progressed..." - Claire Brase, Mendocino Land Trust summer intern 2018
