Join us for an evening in support of the Orange County Land Trust, featuring cocktail style dining, a silent auction of unique Hudson Valley experiences and services, and an exciting paddle raise and raffle!

The evening will be a celebration of land conservation and the people who are helping ensure our open and working lands remain a vibrant and valuable part of our county’s economy and heritage. This year’s event will bring together an enthusiastic group of local conservation and business leaders, as well as our partners in county and state government, as we honor Michael Gilfeather, President and CEO of Orange Bank & Trust Company, for his support of land conservation.

We will also recognize David Church, Orange County Planning Commissioner, who will be presented with the Louis V. Mills Conservation Award for his longtime support of conservation, smart growth planning, and farmland protection.
