Land trust's Annual Event and Fundraiser on Thursday!
The Land Trust of the Upper Arkansas hosts its Annual Event and Fundraiser at Mountain Princeton Hot Springs Resort on Thursday, Nov. 17, from 5:30-9 p.m.
The land trust has redefined its vision and mission and set new goals that will triple its pace of conservation over the next decade, including a commitment to protect an additional 20,000 acres by 2026. These new plans, developed through months of strategic planning by the board of directors and staff, will be highlighted during the event.
The event is the land trust’s largest annual fundraiser. More than $20,000 worth of goods are available during the silent auction that raises money to support conservation projects in Central Colorado.
Items up for grabs during the silent auction include ski gear and lift tickets, international travel opportunities, guided outdoor adventures, gift certificates to dozens of local establishments, and much more. The evening includes appetizers, a cash bar, and a presentation of the Conservationist Award to a surprise recipient.
Tickets cost $40 for land trust members and $45 for non-members. They are available at www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2640767 and can also be purchased at the land trust office, 128 E. First St., Salida, and by calling the office at 539-7700.
