The Jost van Dyke Preservation Society
The Preservation Society has really taken off since we hired a full-time programs coordinator in the Fall of 2007. An overview of key program activities can be found at our web site www.jvdps.org. Please take a moment to read my personal statement about the Society's value to the people - and visitors - of the island at The Society.
In 2008 our Society won a grant for a 2 year project profiling the environmental features of Jost van Dyke and educating the youth, residents and visitors. Take a look at the project's web site at www.jvdgreen.org for information about the island and the complete published results of the profile.
The construction of a wooden island sloop is renewing interest in the maritime heritage and heroics of Caribbean island life and is happening right on Jost Van Dyke. The Jost Van Dyke (BVI) Preservation Society is managing this project which involves local sailors of Jost and students. Bruce is on the Board of the Society, and we would love to have your interest and support.
Also, we have a US-based entity, the JVD Preservation Society, Inc. of Maryland which is a tax exempt organization. As a U.S. taxpayer, your support could be tax deductible! See www.jvdps.org.
