Southern Humboldt Community Park

https://www.sohumpark.org

We believe the inherent beauty and value of the natural landscape is tied to our cultural history. It weaves vitality and meaning into the fabric of our daily lives. So, we acquired 462 acres of meadow, forest and historic ranch structures along the Eel River to establish a regional park. Our goal is to create opportunities for recreation, culture, agriculture, education and celebration and to ensure the enjoyment of this rich, diverse land for generations to come and to conserve the Park's scenic, historic and natural resources.

As this is in the home town of the Lost Coast Plant Therapy family, it has a special place in our heart.

Mewater Foundation

https://www.mewaterfoundation.org

Stewards of the environment, diversity, equity and inclusion. 

MeWater Foundation works to address adjustments of trauma and stress in young people from backgrounds of poverty and violence by providing a different way of relating to the world and communities they live in, all through the power of nature and the ocean. MeWater connects vulnerable young people to positive community members and creates opportunities for youth to develop new skills, practice new coping mechanisms and form positive, reciprocal relationships with trusted peers.

All year round, MeWater runs programs throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, including day and overnight camps for youth with a mental health approach to mindfulness, empowerment, and exposure to the ocean and outdoors.

MeWater Foundation is more than surfing. It is about increasing one's own self-reliance and purpose. It is about leveraging the strengths of people and reducing social isolation by growing positive connections within the community with the ocean as a conduit to improvement of well-being.
