Our eighth Let It Grow Wild! contest is in full swing, and again you can compete in a full head or facial hair category. Tempting tangle, beehive, rocker head, or chrome dome hairstyle? Loose stubble, soup-strainer, or wooly mammoth mustache? Will simplicity win over avant-garde? Candidates are conjuring styles that will impress the judges and campaigning for votes. It will be definite fun and benefit our thirteenth conservation work trip to Costa Rica.
Let It Grow Wild competitors will create the finishing touches on their hairstyle on April 6. Judges will consider “before” photos of each candidate while carefully assessing in-person final presentations, developed after months (or hours) of cultivation and growth. The winners will be chosen based on the degree of change in appearance, personal style, length and mass of facial hair (for facial hair contestants), and the number of votes from fans, friends, and the awestruck audience at the celebration and judging dinner on April 6.
1-2-3! Help us raise the $7,200 needed to send us on a work trip that will change our lives and the global biodiversity. How?

On Sunday, October 19th, Change the World Kids led this years Source to Sea event in Woodstock. Source to Sea is an annual clean up of the Connecticut River and it’s watershed. Since the Connecticut River is an important flyway for many migratory birds, some that may winter in our Bosque Para Siempre corridor in Costa Rica, it’s important to keep their migratory habitat clean. We cleaned a stretch a few miles downstream than last years event, and we pulled out some amazing things that somewhat told the history of two events: Hurricane Irene’s flood, and the demise of the Woodstock railroad. For instance, we found a railroad rail, a car, and part of a house including half a sink. We’ll go back to pull out some more large metal items and marble and granite slabs. The slabs may become benches at a new park on a nearby restored riverbank.
