CAREFREE – Guests to this unique event will be treated to a fabulous evening at El Pedregal at the Boulders Resort and Spa on Friday, April 12. Proceeds from the evening will benefit two non-profit conservation organizations, Desert Foothills Land Trust (DFLT) and the National Museum of Forest Service History. “We are looking forward to a truly unique evening that celebrates conservation – from its creation to today. We have partnered with the National Museum of Forest Service History to share the story of the people and the special places that helped shape and build America’s conservation story,” Desert Foothills Land Trust’s Executive Director Vicki Preston said. The conservation movement of the late 1800s has gifted us all the ability to be stewards of our public lands for more than 100 years. The National Museum of Forest Service History is home to an amazing collection of historical artifacts including artwork, photographs and documents that share the rich history and story of the beginning of America’s conservation legacy. “As we celebrate our past, we look to important groups like Desert Foothills Land Trust to carry the torch of conservation into the future”, said Lisa

Tate, executive director of the National Museum of Forest Service History. DFLT connects people to nature by working with communities and partners to conserve and steward lands and species for the survival of the fragile Sonoran Desert. The trust’s conservation work provides a balance to development and land use changes – conserving the most special and sensitive natural areas for the benefit of this and future generations. To date, DFLT has permanently protected nearly 750 acres on 25 preserves, and we continue to make great strides in adding acres to our preserve system. The event will begin at 5:30 p.m. with a cocktail hour featuring heavy hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar, as well as interactive vignettes that celebrate significant moments in conservation. Guests will then move in to the Tohono Ballroom where they will enjoy a decadent plated desert paired with wine, while the program begins. There will be a chance to win at a fast-paced live auction that will include a number of unique items and experiences like a 6-day pack trip into the Bob Marshall Wilderness, or a stay at Montana’s exclusive Triple Creek Ranch.
