The weather was perfect, the views were sublime, and the camaraderie was delightful at this year’s Summer Picnic, where we celebrated 10,000 preserved acres! Thanks to all of you who joined us at the Hauser Estate Winery on Sunday, August 20 — we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. At our first Picnic in 2005, we celebrated 3,000 preserved acres, and founder and first president Dean Shultz challenged us to set a goal of 10,000 acres. It took a little longer than expected, but that goal has been met and exceeded. Now on to the next 10,000!
