Farmette Goes Wild
9/6/2017 6:00 PM
Lyons Farmette – Lyons, CO

Dear Friends of the Planet,

We’re delighted to wine and dine together under the full moon and creekside at the Lyons Farmette for the Farmette Goes Wild fundraising event Wednesday, September 6th. Please join us for this special evening and become part of the front lines of wildlife conservation by supporting IDEA WILD, a nonprofit organization dedicated to conserving species all over the planet (www.ideawild.org). Costa Rican biologist Michael Garcia will be joining us, sharing his passion for conservation and detailing how his IDEA WILD assisted research led to the creation of Costa Rica’s newest national park. Front Range Catering will be providing delicious food. Wine and beer will be complimentary. Wally Van Sickle, founder and president of IDEA WILD, will be highlighting projects from over twenty countries that are in need of basic equipment that can be sponsored by attendees. If you are interested in the health and welfare of Planet Earth and making a positive impact, you will not want to miss this opportunity.

Directions ~ The Lyons Farmette is located at 4121 Ute Highway (a.k.a. Hwy 66), at the eastern edge of Lyons. From Boulder, take Highway 36 to Highway 66. Turn left. The Farmette will be exactly half a mile down the road on the right (north side of Hwy 66). Look for the big scrap metal rooster at the end of the driveway. We warn against using Mapquest to locate the Farmette ~ previous efforts have landed visitors on the opposite side of town….

Please arrive at 6:00 and pull in the drive with Farmette parking sign. Park and then just come over the walking bridge to the dinner area ~ it will make sense when you see it.

Weather/Attire ~ Our event is set outdoors and will be held rain or shine. The Farmette offers plenty of covered areas. It’s likely to be warm, but you may want to bring long sleeves just in case. There will be time to wander around and enjoy the gardens as well as tour the Farmette.
