Pacific Rim Institute’s Director Robert Pelant came into the studio today to inform the KWPA listener’s about the history, purpose and goals of the institute.

So many folks Gwen has talked to, over time, have voiced curiosity about the property PRI is located on.  It was about time we heard from one of the long time educators and leaders at PRI, just what is happening on the old quail farm on Parker Road, off Rt. 525, on Whidbey Island.

A podcast of this interview will be on the KWPA podcast page the first of Feb. 2011. Until then click around the PRI website to find out more about the credited programs, volunteer and philanthropic opportunities offered there.
