Pando Education Fund
Support Education Programs and the Pando Photographic Survey
In summer of 2021, Friends of Pando will hire 12-15 students from national art and natural sciences programs to create the first photographic survey of the Pando Tree. A vital record scientists can study to monitor the tree’s health and changes for generations to come.
Our program will inspire the next generation of stewardship by giving students hands on experience in the tree, nightly workshops with leading scientists and artists and a chance to earn recommendations from leaders in their field.
Your donation to this fund is tax deductible and will be administered by our Fiscal Partner, Snow College of Richfield, Utah.
Pando Scientific Research Fund
Support the work of leading Pando Researcher, Paul Rogers
If you have heard about Pando, there’s a good chance it’s because of the work of ecologist Paul Rogers, the leading researcher on the Pando Aspen clone. Paul’s work on aspen ecology over the last 20 years has brought together a broad collective of scientists from around the world to develop novel research programs and management frameworks to promote understanding of Aspen ecology and reveal the mysteries of the recently discovered Pando.
Donations made to Paul’s organization, the Western Aspen Alliance (WAA), are tax-deductible and will go directly to restoring the Pando Aspen Clone and monitoring and innovating research methods to understand the tree.
