Thank you for making the 8th Annual Celebration of the Prairie a success!



Thanks, everyone, for coming out to SPLT’s 8th Annual Celebration of the Prairie on October 26, 2019. Thanks especially to First Gentleman Marlon Reis for his inspiring talk about the need to protect Colorado’s precious prairie wildlife and to Governor Jared Polis for attending. 

SPLT raised almost $40,000 the night of the Celebration thanks to generous donors like you! Thank you to all of our donors and supporters for coming together to help SPLT work to double our preserve network in size by purchasing the property adjacent to Heartland Ranch Preserve over the next 5 years.
