Fall Artists’ Retreat 2019

Since 2015 KNLT has been partnering with artists to advance the protection of wildlands. We held our eighth artists retreat on Pine Mountain last fall with a wonderfully creative group bringing the total number of retreat attendees to over 150 since we launched the program. The retreat offers an immersive weekend and engages artists in our Pine Mountain Wildlands Corridor project. Art and conservation are powerful partners. We welcome this new group of artists into the Pine Mountain Collective.

The fall retreat was made possible with funding from Snowy Owl Foundation & Patagonia.
