After much planning, we are heartbroke to annouce that our Showcase and Dinner on March 18th has been officially cancelled. Our host, the Kent Intermediate School District Career Tech Center has officially said they will not allow any gatherings so they have decided for us, along with the Governor’s mandate of no groups larger than 100. Thank you so very much for signing up to attend our Conservation Showcase. We will see about the possibility of a late spring reschedule date. We would be very pleased if you could attend. 1) Please show your support of the District and conservation efforts through the native plant sales May 2nd and May 23rd 10-3pm at the District office (3260 Eagle Park Dr NE/ corner of Leonard and Beltline). https://www.eventbrite.com/e/kent-conservation-district-2020-spring-tree-shrub-sale-tickets-98081108235
