Wine & Wildlife on the Prairie

Thanks to everyone that participated!
Together, we raised over $10,000 for land conservation on the southern plains.


Join SPLT for a special event on Wednesday, July 22 at 6pm MT. We’re partnering with Talon Wine Brands to bring you an hour-long online adventure. It will include a virtual wine-tasting and winery tour by Talon Winery owner Glenn Foster and a “visit” to the prairie with SPLT Director Nicole Rosmarino and Preserve Manager Jay Tutchton.

If you’ve always wanted to come to a SPLT event, but couldn’t physically make it – here’s your chance.

How does this work? Buy a ticket at SPLT’s Gift Shop, and we’ll send you event admission details. Wine & Wildlife on the Prairie is all online, which means only one ticket is necessary for your household. Tickets range in price from $25-$250:


Proceeds from this event will go directly to land acquisition by the Southern Plains Land Trust.
