Chocolate for Conservation

Photos by Emily Bartlet

Supporters of land and water conservation came together to indulge in fine confections and bid on local art inspired by nature for ClearWater Conservancy’s 17th annual For the Love of Art & Chocolate at the Ramada State College Hotel and Conference Center. Guests enjoyed silent and live auctions for dozens of pieces of local art, plus raffles, hors d’oeuvres and, of course, gourmet chocolate, all while connecting with friends new and old. Proceeds from the event go to conserve special land, restore streams, protect water and introduce people to the great outdoors.
