Membership party for El Charco
By Jade Arroyo
On Thursday, December 5, a cocktail reception was held to promote membership to the gorgeous nature reserve El Charco del Ingenio. The reception was held at the magical Posada Corazón (Aldama 9) among the perfume of trees and flowers on a pleasant night that was not too chilly.
For that day only, annual membership to El Charco was offered at 600 pesos, instead of the usual 700 pesos. Members receive several perks, including free entrance for the member and two friends and discounts on activities such as concerts, workshops and courses. Among those present were the president, board members and staff of El Charco and a diverse group of people of different ages, nationalities and professions who all had in common their love and support for this great place.
Buying a membership is really the easiest way to support El Charco, which is a self-sustainable civic association. By supporting El Charco you are helping to preserve over 150 bird species, 32 species of mammals, 110 species of butterflies and over 500 plant species, in addition to helping to create awareness about ecology and environmental education. Memberships can be purchased at the front desk of El Charco or at Posada Corazón (Aldama 9). For further information, visit www.elcharco.org or call 154-4715.
