- CRD map / Google Earth map
- Land Purchase Fund Drive page (from wiki) Proposal: let's add "names" to the Levels of Contribution: (note: on names: instead of bronze, silver, platinum I chose some biological levels/entities that had resonance for me. We could choose another series of names for the levels)
- Human Level: Member application and process towards residency and directorship in the Co-Operative - $1000 member share (link to Membership page) and link to Membership application process page.
- Ecosystem Level: Investor (One of 2 ways)
- 1) Investment Shares (Class A) purchased. Proposal: Add to the Land Purchase Fund Drive page: Does not confer participation in Co-Operative decision making unless Membership is also pursued (and that Investment Shares can be purchased without being a Member)
- 2) Investment placed in Land Purchase Trust - will be converted to Class A Investment Shares in September 2010 (or return to Investor if EcoReality's fundraising goal is not reached - URL to Trust Page) (add to http://www.ecoreality.org/wiki/Finance)

- Animal Level: Lender (Terms of loan to be determined, preferred pre-payment option, 0-4%, prefer over at least 5 years) (suggest changing wording of the "Loans" section on this page - simply to move the first sentence to later, as it is written in the negative.)
