Through a partnership and collaboration of the National Park Service and the non-profit Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts, the park offers both natural and cultural resources. The park began as a donation from Catherine Filene Shouse. Encroaching roads and suburbs led Shouse to preserve the former farm as a park. In Congress accepted Shouse's gift and authorized Wolf Trap Farm Park its original name as the first national park for the performing arts. The former staffs and operates the park grounds, and the latter produces and presents the performance and education programs. The latter venue being adjacent to but outside the park proper. In addition, the Foundation operates the Wolf Trap Opera Company , a resident company for young opera singers. The Foundation's education programs, also located adjacent to but outside the park proper, include the national Wolf Trap Institute for Early Learning Through the Arts, a nationally recognized college internship program,  and the Children's Theatre-in-the-Woods. This last performance venue is located in the park proper.

There are two ways to go about this. My seminary teacher went off on me about dating a non Mormon when I was talking about going to his prom. Love the man you are going to marry- warts and all he loves yours as well. Take a breath, stop and think, is it worth destroying so many lives so you can step in and take the rewards after someone else does the hard work. When we obsess over it we start acting like a customer in a clothing store wondering what he or she will look like if they wear that particular wardrobe. My experience with non members has been so much more meaningful and caring. My wife chose me, but most people aren't so lucky. Just to make things worse I am from South America, he is australian and we live in Australia, no much support here Anyway good to know that I am not the only one.
