4th Annual Conservation Social

This annual social event inspires us to participate in local land conservation by cultivating connections to the land via conservation-minded speakers from the arts community. This is a free event with a Call for Conservation donation request during the evening. 

Ana Maria Spagna lives and writes in Stehekin, a remote North Cascades community. She’s the author of five books including, most recently, Reclaimers. Her work appears regularly in journals and magazines such as Orion, Creative Nonfiction, Ecotone, Brevity, and High Country News.

Peregrine O’Gormely, a La Conner-based sculptor and carver, gained a deep appreciation for Northwest art during early travels to Alaska and Canada and was enthralled with the breathtaking landscape, its wildlife, and origin myths. Peregrine sculpts nearly all of his original work from local wood. Juniper, Western Red Cedar, Maple and Yew are his local favorites.
