Conserving our Natural Resources

ArBEER Day Sponsorship

Looking for a tax deductible donation opportunity?

Butler SWCD's annual ArBEER Day event is looking for sponsors. On Arbor Day, for the third year in a row, the District will be handing out free trees and ArBEER Day t-shirts at Hamilton's Urban Backyard. The goal is to promote conservation and support the community by planting trees and enjoying the local breweries on tap at the HUB. 

If you're interested in supporting this great cause please email Sarah Hill.
