So Wild a Place – 2023 Fundraiser

Calling all early birds, nature lovers and party animals! Get your tickets now for the annual Black Swamp Conservancy celebration of conservation!

So Wild a Place is a fun backyard gathering of people who care about clean air and water, healthy soil, and family farms, and who like to eat and dance. Early bird tickets are available for $75 through June 1.

This year’s party and fundraiser is June 10, 2023 at West Side Montessori in Toledo, starting at 5:30 pm. We’re welcoming back our food friends from Fremont, Jimmy G’s barbeque. They’ll have lots of choices for a variety of diets, including vegan and vegetarian.

We always have great music, and this year we have Miss Tess: a Nashville-based singer and her 4-piece band. They bring the swing with a groove that nods to the traditions of saloon jazz, country swing, and early rockabilly while maintaining a unique sound.

While you’re dancing and enjoying local beers and wines from the open bar, don’t miss the live auction! Be ready to bid on items including exclusive excursions on Black Swamp Conservancy-protected properties, flying lessons, a suite at a Mud Hens game, a hand-crafted cedar herb planter, Toledo Metropark adventures, and many more unique items.


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!
