SUGGESTED PROJECTS

Active projects have the name of the co-ordinator attached as an e-mail link or are high lighted in red. If you want to coordinate one of these or start one not listed here, please contact Don Hayward to have the project included on the list. We are eager to discuss approaches and methods for projects, and always happy to just chat. Anyone wishing to become involved in an active project should contact its co-ordinator. On the main page we have listed links to other active projects in the area. While we are not involved in any of these, we encourage anyone interrested to contact the appropriate people. Many professional and professionally co-ordinated efforts are to be found in our area with some seeking volunteers.
