“We have been doing some great things for conservation, and I look forward to sharing our successes with our supporters, donors, volunteers, and community leaders,” said McCarthy. “This event also serves as a fundraiser for us, so we ask anyone who would like to learn more about us to join us for this evening and help us continue our mission to conserve land throughout North Florida.”
