Join us for an evening to celebrate Cold Hollow to Canada's accomplishments this past year and what we have to look forward to in 2019. We'll enjoy a catered dinner together at the Montgomery Grange Hall and hear from conservation leader, Tom Butler.

Tom Butler is Vice President of Conservation Advocacy at the Foundation for Deep Ecology. He is a longtime conservation activist and writer who has concentrated primarily on wilderness and biodiversity. He is the former longtime editor of Wild Earth journal. His books include Wildlands Philanthropy, Plundering Appalachia, Keeping the Wild: Against the Domestication of Earth, and ENERGY: Overdevelopment and the Delusion of Endless Growth. Tom was a founding board member, former president, and is a current member of the board of directors of Northeast Wilderness Trust.

Tom lives in the foothills of the Green Mountains in Huntington, Vermont with his wife. They both enjoy spending time exploring the land right outside their door and getting to know their wild neighbors including moose and black bears, fishers and coyotes who they value as much as their human neighbors.

Additionally, the Montgomery Center for the Arts will have a special preview of CHC founder Nancy Patch's art collection from 3 - 6 pm. This three decade art collection of 160 pieces will be on display and for sale throughout the month of October. A portion of the sales will be donated to Cold Hollow to Canada.
