So Wild a Place – 2022 Fundraiser

*This event is sold out. There will not be any tickets available at the door.

As Henry David Thoreau knew, a walk through the woods – or a swamp, or a garden – provides calm and joy and restores our energy and sense of purpose.

Join us to celebrate the wildness of northwest Ohio and our conservation mission with others like you who care about natural habitats and family farms in the beautiful outdoor space of the Toledo Botanical Garden.

So Wild a Place is Saturday, July 16, 2022, from 5:30 pm – 10 pm. Tickets include entertainment, food, and beer and wine.

We’ll have the entire park to explore as we enjoy a pulled pork BBQ dinner with all the fixings and listen to classic country music artist Jesse Daniel and his six-piece band for their first-ever Ohio performance. We’ll also have a live auction that features some exciting outdoor experiences. Check out everything that’s on offer here.

Our natural places provide more than just respite for people needing to relax and renew. Woods, wetlands, and fields provide habitat for threatened and endangered plants and animals. They provide space for floodwaters and naturally treat nutrients and other pollutants that we don’t want to reach our lake.

We would love to visit together, but if you can’t come in person, we are offering a limited number of celebration kits as well. Your kit will be shipped to your home and include a taste of the event, including Conservancy gear, local products and music from Jesse Daniel. 


There’s so much that goes into planning and executing an event of this magnitude. It wouldn’t be possible without the help of our sponsors, and we’re grateful for their support.
