Your help is very much needed! We have lost half our staff due to illness and other unexpected reasons. Half of what’s left is going to help out on Katrina relief just before our event. We are fighting one of if not the most powerful company in Orange County. Just yesterday they illegally closed off historic daily used access to local lands thus spreading us even thinner.
Please distribute widely! This is critical for us! A lot more then I can say here is at stake.

This year’s Tree Hugger's Ball, scheduled for Saturday, May 19th in Baker Canyon (Silverado), CA., is a chance to experience the beautiful canyon areas we are striving to preserve while helping to educate the community about our vanishing wild spaces, and our vital part as stewards of the earth. This year’s ball focuses on the title “Go Green in the OC!” The event will feature exhibitors of eco-friendly products and transportation, well known environmental speakers, live Musicians and a catered dinner. The Southern California Plein Air Artist Association will be exhibiting their paintings in a juried show and art sale. Paintings will be judged and awarded by Kellogg Museum Curator and Internationally known artist, Pat Merrill, from Cal Poly Pomona University. 35% of the art proceeds will go to the Canyon Land Conservation Fund’s wildland preservation efforts.
We will have old timey folk & Bluegrass music by the “Lilies of the West” and “Shadybrook”, Rock n’ Roll Blues of “This Side Up”, and “Cubensis”, a Grateful Dead cover band, so you know there will be a lot of smiles and dancin’! Earthy costumed dancers make the ball a fun place to be! All this while we're simply having a "Ball" under a beautiful canopy of Oak Trees! It's a fun event for all ages.
