The Nisqually Land Trust will celebrate its 25-year anniversary at its annual Conservation Auction & Dinner 4 p.m. to 9 p.m., April 26, at St. Martin University's Worthington Center.
Proceeds from the event help manage the 4,600 acres the land trust has conserved in the Nisqually River watershed, and provides financial support for additional conservation.
The land trust will also present its President's Awards to the Petersen Family of Yelm and Thurston County. The non-profit group recently purchased a conservation easement on the 230-acre Petersen Farm, which includes more than one mile of salmon-producing Nisqually River shoreline.
The purchase was made possible by a Conservation Futures grant from Thurston County, plus contributions from the Nisqually Tribe and the Petersen Family.
Tickets for the dinner and auction are $75. For reservations and information, call 360-489-3400 or contact www.nisquallylandtrust.org.
