2021 gala

Save the Date! 

Wednesday, September 22nd

The Western New York Land Conservancy’s gala is our most important annual event. It is an opportunity for our community to honor people who have made contributions to conservation, to share stories, and to grow stronger together. The 2021 Gala will be hosted the evening of Wednesday, September 22nd. The gala will once again be virtual, but we hope by the fall, people will be able to get together in small groups to celebrate together, in-person.

Tickets will be available this summer.
