Evening Under the Oaks, SRT's annual major fundraising dinner under the trees and stars at Kaweah Oaks Preserve returns April 27, 2023 for another celebration of the year's conservation gains and the people who make them happen.
This year's SRT Alan George Conservation Award will posthumously honor the late Mike Chrisman, conservation champion, farmer, and SRT Board of Directors Chair at the time of his passing. The Chrisman family will be on hand to receive the recognition of his many achievements, including service to the State of California as Secretary of Natural Resources under Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Chrisman will join an illustrious roster of past Alan George Conservation Award winners including George himself, catalyst for Kaweah Oaks' establishment; the late Bill Clark, farmer and founder of Worldwide Sires as well as SRT Clark Preserve near Hanford; Bill Tweed, Sequoia Park Naturalist; and noted conservation educators Rob Hansen and Nancy Bruce.
Live entertainment and fine catering are also on the bill, with tickets going on sale in early April. Look for upcoming announcements and details.
