arboreal newt-2Golden Hour Restoration Institute works to bring restoration ecology to all interested people. We attempt to do this by creating programs and partnerships in a vast and diverse number of areas from Marin to Santa Clara to the East Bay. We have many partners that fund annual programs and workshops. Those allow us to run many more programs at no cost at all to the participants.

Our goal is to provide support whenever support is needed regardless of finances. Donations help us bridge this gap and make our programs accessible to all (with no hassle for the student).  Donations from individuals who value resource conservation and education are an integral part of our budget!

Please help us meet our financial needs through a tax deductible donation – either via paypal below or by check. We are happy to also consider in-kind donations of materials or equipment or other services. Please contact our staff at with “Donation” in the subject line.
If you have just donated online – thank you for your support! We count every penny and make it work towards our shared goals.

We encourage you to review last years’ annual report to see where your hard earned donations were spent.
