   Gail Barnes and other volunteers present approximately 100 environmental education programs in and around the Texas South Plains each year. The students from the new Jayne Ann Miller Elementary School (set to open January 6, 2015) adopted "Titan," a Great Horned Owl raised by Gail, as their school mascot.  " Titan" has the distinction of being the only 'live' mascot in all of LISD. Titan was also present at the school's groundbreaking last fall.

     Founder Carol Lee finally created a Facebook account in mid-June. The day before, she signed SPWRC up on the GoFundMe website at GoFundme.com so it could be piggy-backed onto my new Facebook account. I hope we’ll get some donations from this site to help us reach our goal to modify our 26 year old three-story barn which has never been completed. For 19 years we were 100% volunteer, but when we had to hire a full and part-time employee, I saw that dream receding into the distant future. Last year, however, we received $189,435.00 from the Talkington Foundation, and this is seed money to jump start this project and makes it become a reality. A “good faith estimate” by our architect and builder estimates the cost at $295,621.00. We’d like to raise the difference - $106,186.00 – so we don’t have to strip our savings. Every penny not used for operating expenses has been put in the bank and we have no debt. Please check it out. If we’ve helped you in the past, perhaps you will help us reach our goal now!
