A Fantastic Show, an Even Better Crowd

Santa Feans filled the Opera House for Lyle Lovett and His Large Band, a benefit performance for The Santa Fe Watershed Association.

The band played a three-hour rave up of old hits and new songs and welcomed local favorite and national legend Bill Hearne to the stage to sing “A Walk through the Bottomland,” making SFWA’s second annual benefit concert a party as well as sold-out success.

SFWA’s board and staff thank Heath Concerts and KUNM for their work in putting on and promoting the show. An extra special thank-you goes out to everyone who came to the show and gave generously to volunteers posted throughout the audience.

Your support makes SFWA’s work possible, including:

  • 1,200 4th and 5th graders from our public schools learning about water, forest ecology, beavers, (and more!) all on a spectacular day-long field trip!
  • 1,100 volunteers clearing the Santa Fe River of unhealthy, unsightly garbage (about 950 bags a year to be exact).
  • 1,500 new seedlings along the riparian corridor: birds, Bees and happy trees!
  • Launching our new Adopt-an-Arroyo Program, because arroyos need love too.
  • A collaborative approach to river planning in La Cienega, where food is grown locally!
  • The curation of a Valentine’s for the River Children’s Art Exhibit at the Community Gallery in February of 2013.
  • And Much, much more!
