A benefit for Los Padres ForestWatch
Celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the Sespe Wilderness
and Honoring The Thacher School with the Wilderness Legacy Award
We are proud to offer a sustainably-produced event with recycling and composting provided by The Thacher School. All event materials are printed on 100% post-consumer recycled paper whenever possible to protect the environment.
Underwriting Composting & Recycling
We will be presenting the 2017 Wilderness Legacy Award to The Thacher School for their commitment to conservation of the Los Padres National Forest as well as their many years of outdoor education and sustainability efforts.
The Thacher School’s dedication to remain firmly grounded in an outdoor ethic, a responsibility to environmental sustainability, and a deep connection to nature resonates deeply with us. Every fall and spring – and many weekend trips between – students and faculty take to the trails for backpacking trips, leaving out their back door to explore the Los Padres National Forest and other wild and protected places across our beautiful state of California. And on many weekends, you are likely to find small groups of students and faculty members maintaining and improving trails such as Horn Canyon Trail, a gateway from the Ojai Valley into the Los Padres National Forest. Within our community, The Thacher School serves as a beacon of balanced living, an example of how to live, play, and work sustainably, and we are excited to give them this year's Wilderness Legacy Award.
