Our signature celebration.

Once in a Blue Moon | October 21, 2023

This October, The Land Trust invites supporters to join us for Once in a Blue Moon – our largest fundraiser of the year, which generates critical funds to support The Land Trust’s mission to conserve the unique character of Tennessee’s irreplaceable landscapes.

Known for its signature ‘boots and jeans’ atmosphere, Once in a Blue Moon provides a welcoming platform for supporters to join a larger conservation movement that directly impacts the quality of life for present and future generations of Tennesseans.
