One year ago…

It has only been one year that hurricane Irma hit St Maarten hard and affected practically all life on this island.

We’d like to thank all of the people who’ve contributed to the restoration of Seaside Nature Park and the Discovery Farm as well the support for all the horses of Lucky Stables.
