    “Sky Island Alliance is celebrating 25 years of protecting and restoring the beautiful and unique Sky Islands. We couldn’t have made it as far as we have without YOU, so we hope you’ll join us.

    Enjoy an evening of great food, music, and friends. Leila Lopez will be playing her soulful tunes! Sky Island Alliance Poet Laureate Jefferson Carter will be reading his works and selling copies of his latest book (proceeds to benefit SIA)! We also have a great silent auction lined up with regional items, gift certificates for restaurants and shows, and local artwork.

    Come hang out with our staff, see what we’ve been up to, and help us dream about what we want to accomplish in the next 25 years!”
