Have a martini and support the meadow!

Join us for an unforgettable evening of celebration and support at Martinis in the Meadow, a special Earth Day event benefiting HeartLands Conservancy and The Exploration Garden at Swansea Clinton Hills Conservation Park.

Come and immerse yourself in the beauty of nature while enjoying a delicious martini and supporting the transformation of a former golf course into a stunning public demonstration garden and outdoor classroom.

The 6-acre Exploration Garden, located at the Clinton Hills Conservation Park in Swansea, is quickly becoming a local treasure, showcasing native plant and educational displays, rainwater demonstrations, and wildflower meadows. With phase 2 completed in 2022, we are excited to continue our work in 2023, and we invite you to be a part of this journey.

Your ticket purchase of $75 includes two drink tickets, appetizers, and live music by the Jazz Troubadours. All proceeds support HeartLands Conservancy’s ongoing work, including the continued transformation and expansion of the Exploration Garden.

Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to celebrate nature and invest in our region’s future as a jewel where all can continue to experience and learn the wonders of our natural world.

Purchase your tickets now and join us for an evening of fun, philanthropy, and inspiration!
