Sycamore Land Trust's Annual Celebration

Our first in-person Annual Celebration since 2019 will be held on September 23, 2023, at Switchyard Park Pavilion in Bloomington. We look forward to celebrating with you!

Join us as we celebrate another year of protecting vital southern Indiana habitat for Forever. Our Annual Celebration is Sycamore’s biggest event of the year, raising funds that enable us to preserve more land, build more trails, and continue our free education programs.

The program will feature a reading from Scott Russell Sanders, a virtual tour of our habitat restoration projects with Land Stewardship Director Chris Fox, dinner catered by One World Catering, drinks provided by Upland Brewing Company and Oliver Winery, and a silent auction of nature experiences, eco-themed gift baskets, goods donated by generous local and national businesses, and beautiful nature art including the painting “Canyon Forest Creek” by Meg Lagodzki.
