“The History of Conservation in Sheridan County” is the topic of the April Sheridan County Historical Society's dinner and program, set for Thursday, April 28th at the Kalif Shrine Center in Sheridan.
They will be looking at settlement of this area in the mid- to late 1800's all the way up through current planning efforts, which began in the 1940's. New Director of the Nature Conservancy, Rick Pallister, discusses the program.
Colin Betzler is the Executive Director of the Sheridan Community Land Trust. He says that there are many more organizations that could have also contributed to Thursday's presentation, what he terms the “heavy lifters” of conservation efforts in Sheridan County.
Pallister's and Betzler's presentation on April 28th is free of charge; dinner has a cost of $14, and reservations need to be placed by noon today. Dinner, catered by Killy's, begins at 6 pm and the presentation starts at 6:45 pm.
