Bluegrass for More Green Space!

The Gibson Brothers’ Performance at The Cock ‘N Bull in Galway to Benefit Saratoga PLAN 

GALWAY – On the evening of August 16th, Saratoga PLAN is hosting a bluegrass concert to raise funds for conservation in Saratoga County. The concert is being held at the Cock ‘N Bull Restaurant in Galway and will feature treasured local duo, The Gibson Brothers.  

Tickets to the event are $75.00 and include complimentary finger foods. There will be a cash bar. Guests are invited to bring their own blankets and chairs for lawn-style seating; other seating is limited. Doors open at 5:30 PM and the bluegrass begins at 6:30 PM.   

This is PLAN’s first major event since COVID-19 protocols have been lifted.

“Our parks, trails and green spaces deserve a standing ovation for having helped people through the pandemic,” said Alex Fylypovych, PLAN’s community engagement manager ” They kept people active, provided a socially-distanced way to meet with friends outdoors, offering respite, educational opportunities and more.”

“We’re so excited to be able to gather in-person as a community to express our gratitude for the outdoors but also to look excitedly toward the future because there are some incredible conservation opportunities at our fingertips.”  

Proceeds from the event will benefit Saratoga PLAN’s ongoing protection of critical resources helping to combat climate change, including farms that provide local food, forested lands absorbing CO2 and rainwater, and open spaces providing wildlife corridors for native plants and animals. The only land trust focused on Saratoga County, PLAN is currently working on 18 land projects totaling over 2,000 acres.
