The Trustees and friends of the Willistown Conservation Trust invite you to join in celebrating the acquisition of the beautiful 80-acre Rushton Woods Preserve, and to recognize the many organizations and individuals who helped purchase and preserve it forever.  Thanks to the remarkable commitment of many, the permanent protection of the Rushton Woods Preserve, located at the corner of Goshen and Delchester Roads, assures that this special place will always be there for everyone to enjoy.  Whether picking up fresh local produce at the Trust’s Rushton Farm, witnessing the capture of a tiny Saw-Whet Owl at our Bird Banding station, or hiking the two miles of trails through woodlands and fields that are home to a rich diversity of plants and wildlife, we hope you will share a feeling of ownership of this special place. It now belongs to all of us!  So … Let’s Celebrate together!  Colossal Carrot - $5,000 - 8 places at the table ($3,600 is tax deductible) Preservation Pepper - $3,000 - 6 places at the table ($1,950 is tax deductible) Conservation Cabbage - $2,000 - 4 places at the table ($1,300 is tax deductible) Restoration Radish - $1,000 - 2 places at the table ($650 is tax deductible) Sustainable Spinach - $225 - 1 place at the table ($50 is tax deductible) Young Friends Yam - $175 - 1 ticket (Age 35 or younger) CO-CHAIRS Janice and Britt Murdoch Leanne and Rob McMenamin COMMITTEE Tim Barnard Alice & Christian Bullitt Care & Warren Claytor Jayme & Bryan Colket Catharine & Gary Cox Carolyn & Woody Cullen Lisa & Sandy Davne Nancy & Dick Eales Tracy & Sam Freeman Esther & Paul Gansky Kat & Steve Gord Eliza & James Gowen Alice & Peter Hausmann Erin & Frank Herz Lynn & Tony Hitschler Lyn & Bill Howard Beth & David Hucker Francie Ingersoll & Matt Taylor Ann & Mark Ledger Betsy & Bob Legnini Jeanne McManus & Rob Good Joanna & Art McMorris Nia & Collin McNeil Jennifer & Chris Moller Betty Moran Douglass & Arthur Newbold Donna & Bill Oliver Diane & Bob Roskamp Christine & Fritz Seving Marilyn & Lang Smith Liz & Peter Strawbridge Debi & Lance Taylor Bonnie & Jim Van Alen Colby & Rob Van Alen Jane & Doug Walker Tana & Michael Wall Penny & Tom Watkins Josephine Winsor Celebrating Rushton is presented by
