Central Colorado Conservancy's Annual Event Nov. 7 to feature former Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter

Upper Arkansas Valley – [October 17, 2019] Central Colorado Conservancy invites the public to its 10th Annual Event from 5:30-9 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 7, at the Chaffee County Fairgrounds, and is excited to host former Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter in a thought-provoking talk on Community and Conservation: The Importance of Local Conservation in the Current Political Climate.

The fundraiser also will honor the Annual Central Colorado Conservationist of the Year (to be announced soon), and will unveil the Conservancy’s newest land project.

The event will feature a silent auction, live art auction, heavy hors d’oeurves, cash bar and a fun evening.

With its focus on community and protecting the lands we love, the Conservancy is working to protect four more landscapes and over 2,000 acres of the most iconic views in the region. The Annual Event is a gathering of passionate people who work to support the lands, waters and spirit of Central Colorado and to provide a connection to the natural world. It’s a great opportunity to learn more about the organization and how to support its mission.

“The Conservancy protects Central Colorado’s special quality of life by conserving land (forever), supporting working lands and connecting the community to create big impact,” said Board President Cindy Williams. “Our community is amazing, and we invite everyone to come celebrate conservation success, honor Central Colorado’s Conservationist of the Year and learn about exciting new projects."
