Feynner Travel Fund

A travel fund for Feynner Arias as he begins his retirement. 

Feynner is retiring after 30 years working at the Big Creek Reserve in Big Sur.  For over 3 decades his laughter,  talented insights into the natural world, and compassionate soul  have touched the hearts of so many that have been fortunate enough to meet him and to call him a friend.  As he begins his next chapter, he plans to travel back to his home in Costa Rica and dreams of returning to travel across America.   To help him do that, we are raising funds that he can use for his home in America; one he can live in when he's back in Big Sur and one that can carry him across the country.   Here's a travel trailer that we know he's mentioned.  https://casitatraveltrailers.com/

We have created this fund to thank him for all his years of public service, and to help him fulfill his dream of seeing America.  If you know Feynner you know he has dedicated his life to helping others.  This is our chance to give back a small bit of the enrichment he's provided to us.  And to help make sure he comes back to see us!
