The 2016 Southern Colorado Conservation Awards

When: Wed., Sept. 28, 5-9 p.m. 2016

Humanity has reached a point where conservation efforts will never cease. If we're actually to "leave this place in better shape for our kids," they can't. That's why today, and in the future, we should recognize those leading the efforts, especially those here in our beloved state. Tonight's 2016 Southern Colorado Conservation Awards hosted by the Palmer Land Trust highlights local conservation achievements, from the nitty-gritty work in the field and educational programs, to the politics, businesses and research that are vital to the cause. Another perk of the evening, Colorado Springs' own Galileo Garden Project, a 24,600 square-foot testament to urban agriculture and permaculture housed at the Galileo School of Math and Science, claims this year's Environmental Stewardship Award. The celebration starts with cocktails, followed by a farm-to-table dinner and program. 5-9 p.m., Cheyenne Mountain Resort, 3225 Broadmoor Valley Road, registration required, $100 general admission; $40 for young professionals, palmerlandtrust.org/events. — Craig Lemley
