Land Ho! Celebrating Eastern Shore Treasures

Eastern Shore Land Conservancy is pleased to announce its Annual Gala and Silent Auction, Land Ho! Celebrating Eastern Shore Treasures, will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 20, at River House, Aspen Institute.

Josh Mazer and Wells Fargo Financial Advisors are pleased to sponsor this event.

The Gala supports Eastern Shore Land Conservancy’s Annual Fund, which helps us to continue our work saving land in six counties on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. ESLC is a private, nonprofit land conservation organization dedicated to the preservation of farmland and habitat on the Eastern Shore. Funded by member contributions, ESLC helps landowners to discover, evaluate and implement any of the voluntary land preservation options available.  Since its inception in 1990, ESLC has helped landowners to protect more than 53,000 acres of farmland and important habitat on 283 Eastern Shore properties.

River House is a Georgian plantation house overlooking the Wye River on Aspen Institute’s 1,100-acre campus in Queenstown. The Queenstown Conference Center site was donated to Aspen Institute in 1979 by Mr. and Mrs. Arthur A. Houghton Jr.

Auction items this year will include artwork by Marc Castelli, a one-week stay in a Jackson Hole, Wyoming guest home, and sculpture by Judge John C. North.  Past auction items have included exciting vacation packages, art, combine rides, bird walks, and dinners on gorgeous, preserved properties.
