Chicago DU 75th Anniversary Gala Sponsorship Opportunities

Saturday, July 28 at 6:00 p.m., JW Marriott Grand Ballroom
The legacy of DU's "singleness of purpose" is more than 12 million acres of restored and protected habitat. Early pioneers who formed the backbone of the modern-day conservation movement would be pleased with the result. They would also encourage us all to maintain vigilance as our watchword, and remind us that all good things come to an end only when we think of the job as done. Join us for this historic affair and leave your own mark on the next 75 years of conservation history.
