Monday afternoon KOOP members were thrilled to meet with They Might Be Monkeys owner Nevic Donnelly and Friends of the Lost Pines State Parks (Bastrop and Buescher State Parks) representatives Greg and Jamie to coordinate the donation from They Might Be Monkeys to Bastrop State Park that YOU made happen with your online and credit card donations during our membership drive.
During the KOOP Fall Membership Drive, each donation made using a credit card or online was met with a matching donation of $2 from They Might Be Monkeys to Bastrop State Park in support of the tree replanting effort there after last year's wildfires. This afternoon, we took a picture as owner of They Might Be Monkeys Nevic Donnelly wrote a check for $1,500 to the Friends of the Lost Pines State Parks, Texas Park wildlife manager Greg Creacy, and Park Superintendent Jamie Hackett.
