The Connemara Conservancy will extend the Earth Day celebration an extra day with a special family-friendly Hops For Habitat fundraiser on April 23 at Experimental Table in Lucas.
The event begins at 6:30 p.m. and will feature local chefs George Brown (Experimental Table), Matt Hamilton (Local Yocal Farm To Market) and Robert Lyford (Patina Green Home And Market). They will unleash their creative talents on pounds of smoked pork, charcuterie with house made pickles, fresh farm eggs and cool vegetables. All capped off by pastry chef Katie Brown’s homemade smore’s.
There will also be a special menu for the kids.
Tickets are $75 per person and $10 per child and available at connemaraconservancy.com. The event is sponsored by Experimental Table and Nine Band Brewing Co. with proceeds benefitting the Connemara Conservancy, which has been at the forefront of land conservation and environmental education in North Texas for more than three decades.
Connemara Conservancy works closely with farmers, ranchers and other landowners as well as forward-thinking city officials and developers to improve the quality of life in North Texas. This is done by helping protect and preserve our most important assets – land and water.
Connemara now protects more than 6,000 acres as both fee land holdings and under conservation easements with conservation-minded landowners. In addition, thousands of students, families and organizations participate in the Conservancy’s environmental education programs each year.
