Description

Join us for Bear Yuba Land Trust’s biggest fundraiser of the year, Open Spaces & Wild Places Gala and Conservation Awards, Saturday, September 21st at the historic Miners Foundry Cultural Center.

The elegant and rustic family style event features a farm-to-fork dinner prepared by Emily’s Catering and made from the finest ingredients from regional farms and ranches as well as a silent and live auction of one-of-a-kind items and experiences, live music, and the presentation of the 2019 William Nickerl Award for Conservation Leader and John F. Skinner Sierra Outdoors Recreation Award.

New this year, the public can submit nominations online for a Nevada or Yuba County resident that personifies these traits. From now until July 22, anyone can go to www.bylt.org to view the awards criteria, nominate a local conservation hero and view past recipients. A committee – comprised of community leaders and BYLT Board Members – will select the winners by August 1st, who will then be recognized at the Open Spaces, Wild Places Gala.

All net proceeds will support Bear Yuba Land Trust (BYLT), an accredited land trust and non-profit based in Grass Valley with a mission to protect and defend the working and natural lands of the Bear and Yuba River Watersheds and empower healthy, resilient communities through Nature access and education. There is also an opportunity to directly support a priority project each year through Fund-a-Need contributions during the evening. This year’s Fund-a-Need pledges will support improvements to BYLT's first trail project, the Litton Trail.

Since 1990, BYLT has been a conservation leader in the Sierra Nevada region, saving more than 15,000 acres of foothill forests, oak woodlands, meadows, riparian habitat, farms and ranches. This includes over 4,000 acres of critical open space protected for currently threatened, endangered or otherwise listed as a species of special concern, 6,000 of agricultural lands and over 4,000 acres of headwaters lands. BYLT has also built and maintains over 35 miles of trails that provide access to nature for residents and visitors alike.

A limited number of tables are available (seating 8) at $800/Members, $1000/Not-Yet-Members.
