33rd Annual Banquet Highlights

We wish to extend a big thank you to all of our sponsors, donors, advertisers & banquet attendees
that helped make our 33rd Annual Banquet a big success.

Thanks to all of you, the 2019 banquet netted over $50,000.00 for local habitat. Proceeds will be utilized in current projects. In total, we are currently partnering on new projects of approximately 900 acres – all right here in our area. Restoration will start on all these projects in the near future with public accessibility soon to follow. Check our projects page for details on these new parcels as information becomes available.

For 33 years you have made a big impact in the amount and quality of perpetual public habitat right in our backyards. We couldn’t do it without you. We made a number of changes for the 2019 banquet and hope you found them all to be improvements. If you have other suggestions on how we can do a better job please let us know. Give us a call or emailing us any suggestions you may have.
