Eastern Sierra Land Trust’s
10th Annual Lands & Legacy
At Lands & Legacy Benefit Dinner and Paddle Raise, you will have a chance to protect what you care about most. The evening will feature several engaging speakers sharing our stories of success and inspiration. And, not to be missed, is our lively Paddle Raise: a way for you to champion causes that will have a major impact on the future of our region. With donation opportunities ranging from $10,000 to $50, the signature Paddle Raise will offer you the chance to lift your paddle high and make a gift in support of the conservation projects that you care about most.
Following is a peek at the Paddle Raise “menu” we’ll be serving up with the first choice as seen above! We can’t wait to celebrate with you this weekend and walk with you on some of the land you have conserved forever. For more on the land tours for Lands & Legacy guests, please click here.
If you won’t be able to join us, you can still support the Paddle Raise here.
$10,000 – Hope & Resiliency in Nature
Some people spend their whole lives wondering what it means to be a hero. At the Lands & Legacy Paddle Raise, you will have a chance to save precious land and change the lives of wildlife, ranchers, and those in our community… and become a conservation hero…
$5,000 – Home on the Range
Imagine migrating for thousands of miles, only to find that the wetlands you rely on have been lost.
Consider what it means to have worked the lands your great-grandparents did, only to face selling it for development when you really want to conserve them. These families and birds, can’t wait.
You have the power to shape the legacy of the landscapes you love by helping to conserve critical lands before they are lost, forever.
$2,500 – Mule Deer
Mule deer face danger, drought, and hunger every day. Your gift keeps their migration corridors safe and restores their fire-damaged habitat so future fawns have a home to roam.
$1,000 – Butterflies and Bees
Let’s keep the Eastern Sierra blooming with beautiful native plants! With your gift, you’ll be helping build pollinator gardens from Walker to Lone Pine that give butterflies and bees a place to thrive.
$750 – Sage Grouse
Once numbering in the millions, sage-grouse are now a rare sight due to habitat loss. Your gift makes sure that working ranchlands provide safe homes for this iconic bird.
$500 – Weed Warriors
Once a property is conserved, it is our responsibility to make sure that its important values are protected forever. Your gift puts volunteers and staff into action pulling invasive weeds and restoring the places you love.
$250 – Sunflower Sprouts
By teaching local kids about the magic of nature, they will learn to care about our land and water – just like you do. Your gift puts smiles on their faces and inspiration in their hearts.
$100 – Birds & Binoculars
The Eastern Sierra is home to many fascinating and beautiful birds. Your gift protects their habitat and gets bird lovers of all ages out on the land with binoculars in hand.
$50 – A Safe Place for Dace
The Owens Speckled Dace is one of the few native desert fish that can still be found in the Eastern Sierra – and to survive, these little guys need a safe home. Your gift creates havens for all our native species, big and small.
SPECIAL ITEM JUST ADDED!
