INTO THE MEADOW - October 1st, 5:00 PM
Tickets: $150 per person
On October 1st, the Connemara Conservancy Foundation will host the second annual "Into the Meadow" celebration. For the second year, "Into the Meadow" brings together local chefs and food that's been farmed locally for those supporting Connemara's mission to preserve and protect the natural beauty of North Texas.
Tickets are available at www.connemaraconservancy.org or by calling (214) 351-0990. The event begins at 5 p.m. and benefits the Connemara Conservancy, which currently protects over 3,400 acres of land throughout North Texas. The event will feature cocktails and hors d'oeuvres in the Pecan Grove, live music, an auction and a white tablecloth dinner held in the Meadow Preserve and catered by Pecan Lodge Catering. Connemara Executive Director Sandra Greenway said, "From the cocktail reception in the Pecan Grove to the dramatic sunset to the fireflies floating throughout the Meadow during dinner, last year's Into The Meadow was a magical evening. Before it was over, we had people asking us to do it again. Based on the early response, we've had to expand this year's event since last year's was a sell-out."
The Meadow Preserve, a gift in 1981 from Connemara founder Frances Williams of her family's 72-acre meadow, was set aside to preserve Texas' natural beauty as the area expanded. Connemara Members have access to the Meadow on a daily basis. The Meadow also hosts public open houses and bird and nature walks, and is used by thousands of students each year to explore and study nature. Individual and family memberships, from $50 to $1500, are available at connemaraconservancy.org and allow year-round access to the Meadow Preserve. Please be advised that pets and vehicles are not allowed.
The Connemara Conservancy is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation of natural landscapes in North Texas. The more than 3,400 acres of land currently protected by Connemara are home to hundreds of native species of birds, animals and plant life.
