A message from the Director...

Thank you for your interest in Eagle’s NEST.

It brings me great joy to walk this path with you, learning together about creation, how we can know God better by experiencing His created world and ultimately how we can work together in caring for His creation in a way that is pleasing to Him.

The enthusiasm that I have received since developing this ministry has been overwhelmingly encouraging and positive. For that, I thank God!

I would to hear from you and see how we can work together.

Joy and Peace!
