Lawrence, Mass. (June 4, 2014) — The Conservation Alliance will host a “Wild Drinks” happy hour at the Polartec headquarters in Lawrence, Mass. on June 11. A new event series introduced this year, the goal of “Wild Drinks” is to bring together Conservation Alliance member company employees and local conservation organizations in a casual, happy hour setting.

 The New England Wild Drinks event is scheduled for Wednesday, June 11 at the Polartec Manufacturing Facility and Global HQ in Lawrence, Mass. from 4:00-6:00 p.m. Conservation Alliance member companies and grantees are invited to take a guided tour of Polartec’s facility and then gather in a social setting to network and learn more about the New England conservation organizations that have worked with The Conservation Alliance over the years.

 “This is a great opportunity to celebrate local New England conservation projects and Conservation Alliance grantees, while considering how member companies can get more involved on a local level,” said John Sterling, Executive Director, The Conservation Alliance.

 For more information on this event and to RSVP, please contact Kate Ketschek, Conservation Alliance New England-based board member, at kate@revolutionhousemedia.com or call 603-828-1050.
