A Special Night in Support of the Land Trust of the Upper Arkansas
Join the Land Trust of the Upper Arkansas at our Annual Event and Fundraiser on
Thursday, December 5, 2013, 5:30 to 9 p.m., at the Salida SteamPlant.
This year we are fortunate to have one of the most sought-after speakers in the West, Courtney White. Courtney is the cofounder of the Quivira Coalition, a nonprofit in Santa Fe, New Mexico dedicated to building bridges among ranchers, conservationists, public land managers, scientists and others around the idea of land health. Courtney’s talk is on “The Working Wilderness in the 21st Century: Protection is Just the Beginning.” Courtney is a master at bringing together people from diverse backgrounds who share a love of the land. Don’t miss this event!
Also during the evening we will present our Conservationist Award. This award is given for outstanding conservation achievement. This year the Award will be presented to the Hutchinson Family.
