Stardust! Summer Celebration

Stoneleigh: A Natural Garden |
June 3, 2022
6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Stardust: It’s literal. It’s metaphorical. It’s musical. And when it touches us, it’s magical!

Extraordinary trees, intimate gardens, and infinite sky. Explore, revel in, and be inspired by the magic of Stoneleigh: a natural garden, including Catalpa Court—our new water garden feature.

The annual magic of Stardust—Natural Lands’ summer celebration and fundraiser—emanates from the experience of being wrapped in a stunning, conserved landscape as far as the eye can see. Don’t miss this always-special evening of cocktails, roving supper, and much merriment!

Preserved natural areas play an essential role in the health of our planet and personal well-being. Every acre we save cleans the air we breathe, filters the water we drink, soaks up floodwaters, helps cool our planet, gives wildlife food and a home, and brings humans joy.

Natural Lands’ mission has never been more vital, and your sponsorship will advance our highest priorities for saving open space, caring for nature, and connecting people to the outdoors.

So join us for fun of it all. But know that your support will have an impact, and together we can make a difference. Today. And forever.

RSVP by May 20 to ensure your space at this always sold-out event. Questions, please call 610-353-5587 ext. 232.
