Many know the highlight of the South Kingstown Land Trust’s annual calendar is the Great Outdoors Celebration & Auction. In these complicated times the hard decision was made to cancel the 2020 Auction, but there is still lots to celebrate! Over these past few months, the world has formed a deeper appreciation for the great outdoors, open spaces, fresh air, local food, and the beauty of nature. There is reason to celebrate now more than ever.
On Sunday, August 9 at the Barn, 17 Matunuck Beach Road there will be a festive, drive-through event for sponsors and ticket holders. Participants will visit SKLT staff and board members at nine stations scattered across beautiful Weeden Farm: Together Apart, Happy Trails, For the Birds, Protecting Forever, Rhode Food, and more. Overlook the newly hayed fields, see the recently completed tractor shed, and enjoy the local band “Greyhound Dream” all from the safety of your vehicle. For everyone’s wellbeing, SKLT will assign staggered entry times of those attending, which will be communicated in advance to sponsors and ticket holders.
The Great Outdoors Celebration is SKLT’s largest annual fundraiser and provides the funds crucial to ongoing land protection and stewardship. Support their vital work and #celebratethegreatoutdoors by sponsoring the Celebration. Tickets and sponsorships are available at sklt.org/event-tickets/ and start at $25.
