Join us at our 3rd Annual Pride of Place Fundraising Gala!


We are excited to announce Riverside Land Conservancy's 3rd Annual Pride of Place in the Great Outdoors Fundraising Gala held at the historic Crestmore Manor in Riverside on Thursday, October 20th at 5:30 p.m. Join us for the celebration as we recognize the wonderful work our community leaders have done this year to conserve the great outdoors and inspire the next generation of environmental stewards.  

The unforgettable Gala begins with a reception featuring hors d'oeuvres, wine and beer, a silent auction, and includes guests Wild Wonders and their live animals and Rebecca K. O'Connor, local falconer and author, with her falcon. The reception is followed by a culinary dinner, an action-packed live auction, and a presentation of Environmental Awards to our local environmental heroes - all for the purpose of raising support and awareness for valuable open spaces, habitats, and agricultural lands in our community. Lastly, the event ends with an exciting announcement you won't want to miss!
