Rustic Awards Luncheon

March 3 @ 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Exciting News!!! Our annual Conservation Awards Luncheon will be held on Saturday, March 3, at Franklin Canyon Park, in the event room next to the Visitor’s Center.

Our Conservation Awards this year recognize three dedicated Los Angeles Unified teachers who have attended the San Fernando Valley Audubon’s Sepulveda Basin Environmental Education Program (SBEEP) for many years and have provided instruction enhancing education in the areas of research, science, art, and writing. The teachers to be recognized are Marne Treves (Mar Vista Elementary), Dennis Hagen-Smith (Toluca Lake Elementary), and Robert Ishii (Danube Elementary). Our Service Award will be presented to Dick Barth, who has been leading our chapter field trips for more than 20 years.

We will have our traditional basket raffle featuring Carolyn Oppenheimer’s colorful themed creations along with a silent auction of our centerpieces -- sure to attract birds to your yard.

Catering by Harvest Moon will feature delicious sandwiches, savory salads, and scrumptious desserts

Casual Attire!

Handicapped parking will be available as well as drop off areas for attendees as needed. Please contact Paula Orlovich to reserve a handicapped parking space at [email protected]

Please buy your tickets by Feb 25
