    Nature Conservancy Annual Luncheon

    We're going to suggest that few things are more delicious – whether they're from the good kitchens of the JW Marriott or elsewhere – when you know that the price of the meal is going to benefit an organization that maintains 38 ecologically important preserves and conservation projects statewide and has saved nearly 1 million acres of land and water in Texas. That organization is The Nature Conservancy of Texas, and they're not just convening for chit-chat and self-congrats among an array of tasty noontime noms here: This luncheon features a vivid presentation by National Geographic photographer Joel Sartore, as he takes the audience into his ambitious Photo Ark project that was started 11 years ago. To date, Sartore has captured more than 7,500 images of wildlife, putting him over half way to reaching his goal of documenting 12,000 unique species. Today, you can get the ultimate insider's view of that project, and eat a fine lunch, and learn more about the Nature Conservancy – while helping support, in a small but important way, the very life of what is (after all) the only planet we've got.
    Tue., March 20, 11:30am. $150.
