Celebrating Our Success
 
A Landcare member had an idea to bring people together to hear short stories about environmental stewardship and to provide plenty of social time to talk informally. The idea became a celebration in the fall of 2011 and was delivered under the name "Celebrating our Success". Look at the video clip to see some of the celebration.
