As one who loves the outdoors and who has devoted much of my time to its preservation I am seeking to raise funds in order to establish:
- my photographic career, again, after 20 years in hibernation.
- a non-profit foundation. Multi-cultural and environmentally based, dedicated to aiding groups and organizations with an eye to protecting communities both human and environmental; and to strengthen that which inseperably ties humans to their environment.
- a scholarship fund to be administered at and by the Opal Creek Ancient Forest Center in the name of Paul “Tincup” Flores. Aid will be directed towards students seeking a career in wilderness and/or historic/archaeologic human habitat preservation.
Dedicated to and in memory of:
Paul "Pablo" “Tin Cup” Flores
- Last miner, First caretaker
On September 5th, 2004, Friends of Opal Creek mourned the passing of our long-time friend, dedicated employee, and inspiring mentor, Paul Flores.
Known to many as “Pablo” and a few as “Tin Cup”, Paul dedicated much of his life to Jawbone Flats, both as miner for Shiny Rock Mining Co. and caretaker for FOOC.
A memorial service was held in his beloved Jawbone Flats on Sunday, September 12th.Friends and family from all over the country gathered to share tears, stories and laughs, all reminiscent of Pablo. The service was led by Calvin Hecocta, spiritual leader and long- time friend of Opal Creek.
