Back by popular demand…Land Trust trivia! Our emcee for the evening, Executive Director Tom Clay, will lead us in a round of questions to highlight the best of 2018 and preview what’s ahead in 2019, including new protected lands, critical restoration of native habitat, and a sneak peek at our outdoor adventures and outings.

During the evening program, we’ll introduce Mike Carlson, Executive Director for Gathering Waters: Wisconsin’s Alliance for Land Trusts. Mike and the staff at Gathering Waters advocate tirelessly to protect Wisconsin’s conservation heritage and the Knowles-Nelson Stewardship Program—a fund that has helped to protect thousands of acres in Door County. The Stewardship Program is up for renewal and Mike will share the latest on their advocacy efforts.
