  • Enjoy live music, hors d’oeuvres, sodas, beer, and wine (or additional drinks from a cash bar).
  • Learn about the merger and our accomplishments since then.
  • Discover new places for nature walks, and learn how you can help us protect open space.

Event registration for refreshments and drinks is $25 per person for members and $30 per person for non-members. Additional contributions are welcome (we are a 501c3 tax-exempt organization).
