[SPOTLIGHT on Jane Miner]

Today marks Jane Miner's 40th anniversary at the URI Graduate Institute of Oceanography, where she currently serves as their business manager! Largess Forestry stopped into the Dean's Office with a victory cake to celebrate her hard work and dedication over the four decades. Her father, Dr. Miner, founded the famed RI environmental group Save The Bay in 1970. Jane is a Jamestown native, a lover of birds and the ocean, an a real environmentalist and unsung hero! We are grateful to know her and to have worked on her property for so many years, preserving trees and habitat on the east side of Jamestown, overlooking the beautiful Narraganset Bay. Largess Forestry has now deemed February 1, as Jane Miner day, because of her great dedication and hard work.
