First Tartans For the Trust a Success
November 2019 – (Quintessential Barrington)
This first Celtic-themed concert for Barrington Area Conservation Trust (BACT) on August 31, 2019, was a huge success. People of all ages donned their tartan attire and headed to the Barrington Hills Park District Riding Center for the first “Tartans for the Trust”. The event attracted 350 guests who raised funds to protect our community’s rare and exceptional open spaces, provide educational opportunities to the community and programming for high school students, and to make a significant contribution to ongoing efforts which include stewardship and restoration at our nature preserves.
