The Nisqually Land Trust will award its annual President's Partner of the Year awards to the state Recreation and Conservation Office and Hancock Forest Management. They'll get the awards at the trust's 19th annual auction and dinner, set for 4-9 p.m. Thursday at the Saint Martin's University Worthington Center in Lacey.
A limited number of seats are available for the event, which raises money to support the land trust mission of permanently protecting wildlife habitat and scenic vistas in the Nisqually River watershed . The land trust owns and protects 3,540 acres of habitat stretching from Mount Rainier National Park to the Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge.
Tickets cost $75. For reservations and information, call 360-489-3400 .
