Shore Talks – what are they? Think TED Talks (as a fundraiser), focusing on Eastern Shore-centric topics.
So much has been done with this small piece of land known as Calico Fields Farm. Experience the farm’s bounty: from fields of lavender – the varieties and the process for extracting the oil used in making lavender products; from bees – their hives and their honey; from the sun – solar energy meeting the farms electrical needs; from aronia berries – making wine and jam; and from hops for brewing beer. Enjoy a picnic inspired by Provence, created on the Eastern Shore.
Time: 4 PM to 7 PM

Our signature, annual gala event! Join ESLC for an idyllic Eastern Shore evening where land and legacy meet beautifully at Thornton Estate. A rich tapestry is woven from the estate’s family history, conservation practices, and natural beauty. Set in the rolling hills of Kent County along Morgan Creek, Thornton is the centerpiece of over 300 acres of preserved farmland and forests. Sip a cocktail by the pool, savor delicious local fare, swing to the music, stroll the grounds, all while meeting new friends and reminiscing with old as we Party to Preserve!
