‘Birds of a Feather’ flock to support lagoon

Some 250 guests attended the San Elijo Lagoon Conservancy “Birds of a Feather” gala Sept. 26 on the magnificent grounds of the 10-acre Clear Spring Farm in Rancho Santa Fe. The farm is a world-class dressage-training center owned by Elizabeth Keadle. In a nod to the equestrian property, the botanical-themed table centerpieces featured mini blue ribbons. Cuisine was provided by Ki’s Restaurant and Catering, the wine selection courtesy of Decanter Wine Lounge, beer by Stone Brewery Co.

The contemporary jazz ensemble Endangered Speciez Project provided musical entertainment throughout the evening.

Proceeds from ticket sales together with silent and live auction items will benefit the organization’s educational outreach program that annually provides docent-led tours of the lagoon to thousands of school children and adults.

In a heartfelt tribute, Master of Ceremonies Loren Nancarrow presented Barbara Moore with the conservancy’s first lifetime achievement award. A conservancy board member since 1995, Moore has trained more than 200 San Elijo Lagoon docents and over the years has personally led thousands of children and adults on lagoon walks.

“Barbara is one of my true heroes in life,” said Nancarrow.

Bob Chaddock was named Docent of the Year, an honor bestowed on him for the second time. he gala was co-chaired by Denise Stillinger and Celesd Willoughby.
