By Patrick Dooling 3 months agoNo Comments

UPDATE: WSCC’s 40th Birthday & Reunion a huge success!

Over 150 people celebrated the 40th Anniversary of the Western Slope Conservation Center at Heritage Hall on this past Saturday, September 30th! Despite waves of wintry weather, generations of conservation stewards came together in honor of all the accomplishments of our community over the last 40 years.

From founders to future generations, morale was high as we shared stories, ate delicious food and cake, and danced the night away together.

Thank you to all of the people who helped make the celebration happen, including former board members Andrea Robinsong and Patti Kaech, who both helped sponsor the event, as well as Anthony Reichenbach (caterer), Ellen Hutto (cake maker), Big B’s, Revolution Brewing, Zephyros Farm and Garden, Conservation Lands Foundation, and the party planning team: Susie Johnson, Laurie Elendu, Lisa Delaney, Allison Elliot, Betsy Johnson, and Brittney Escobar.

Please check back in as we post more pictures from the event!
