Chehalis Land Trust Riverside Gala 2024 @ Chehalis River Discovery Trail

Our annual fundraising Gala at the riverside will happen Saturday, August 3rd to celebrate 30 years of conservation as a Land Trust.

We will have music by Huckleberry, various refreshments, snacks (or perhaps a small wrap), and desserts.

Guest speakers will tell you how conserved lands and riparian forest help cool the Chehalis River waters, which support salmon survival. The work of the Land Trust and your help will lead to more conserved lands, wetlands, and forests.

Conservation and protection of natural places provide habitat for fish, waterfowl, birds, mammals, and many other species.

The auction is always fun so bring your cash or card; you don’t want to miss that special object or painting!

Tickets will be $25 per person (adults only please). You may purchase 6 tickets to share a table with your friends or family ($150). The maximum number of guests will be 60, so don’t delay!
