Party To Preserve

Saturday, October 30, 2021 · 4:00 – 7:00 PM

The Hermitage, 120 Hermitage Farm Lane, Centreville, MD 21617

Celebrate being together again and say farewell to ESLC’s leader of the last 30 years, Rob Etgen. Please join us in support of conservation on the Eastern Shore!

After the unpredictable nature of the last year, this year’s celebration will be an opportunity to gather together to celebrate and appreciate the efforts we have made and goals that we have accomplished in 2021. And it will be a chance to say goodbye to a dedicated leader and embrace the coming of a new era. Now more than ever, it is essential to protect the land that gives us so much – food, beauty, community, and a refuge from the stresses of uncertain times. Now is the time to ensure that land, whether it be for farming, recreation, or resilient communities, can be enjoyed by everyone.

We are grateful to Ben and Paige Tilghman for sharing The Hermitage, their beautiful preserved estate in Centreville, Maryland, for this year’s Party to Preserve. We look forward to seeing you!
