OSC's Holiday Party

Check out the post to see pictures from this year's event.

Holiday Party a Great Success!

Thank you to all who came out to kick off the holiday season with us at our Holiday Open House on November 18.  This year it was held at our beautiful new space in Tower Grove Park South.  Many people showed up for this festive affair and brought some delicious food to share.  We are very grateful to Urban Chesnut who contributed some outstanding beer and to CFX for sharing the space with us.

With supporters coming from all over the region, it was time to celebrate the accomplishments we have had this year in water and land conservation. Awards were presented to the City of Wildwood, Ozark Outdoors and Larry Cain.  All have been instrumental in helping to preserve and protect our land and water resources.

Larry Cain receives the President's Award for his dedication to Operation Clean Stream.
