Russian and U.S. students shape new outlook with pacific vistas

On Sunday, April 17th, fifty students from top U.S. and Russian universities will meet at California's historic Fort Ross, an early Russian settlement. They will share in joint conservation efforts and meet with prominent environmentalists, scientists and local Kashia tribal leaders.

With the generous support of the Renova Fort Ross Foundation, this collaborative initiative has grown into an annual Fort Ross tradition. "This year is a special year for us as it marks the fifth anniversary of our cooperation with Fort Ross Conservancy and Stanford U.S.-Russia Forum (SURF)," said Olga Miller, CEO of the Renova's U.S. representative office and director of the Renova Fort Ross Foundation. "We are happy to enable young and bright minds from both countries to learn firsthand about our common historic and cultural ties here at Fort Ross." 

Located 80 miles north of San Francisco, Fort Ross was founded in 1812 by the Russian-American Company and is now an enduring reminder of multicultural peace and cooperation. The Renova Fort Ross Foundation is a public charitable foundation established in 2010 by the Renova Group of Companies, a leading Russian business group, to provide support to California's Fort Ross State Historic Park. The Foundation's mission is to promote preservation and to raise awareness of Fort Ross.
