Description

Online ticketing has now closed - if you'd like to attend, please pay at the door.

Let's kick off Climate Week with the Appalachian Mountain Club's "Climate, Conservation & Community" fundraiser at the Loeb Boathouse in Central Park.

At AMC, we believe in the power of community to protect the planet and the places we love. Come celebrate what can be accomplished together & learn what’s next for AMC in the New York region for conservation action and the fight against climate change. For over a century, AMC has been harnessing the power of community to improve trails, advocate for clean air & clean water, and using science-backed strategies to conserve land throughout the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions.

Join us for cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, light buffet and a silent auction in support of AMC’s conservation mission.
