50 years of Amazing Successes

Please join us!

The Planning and Conservation League is celebrating our first 50 years. PCL has been a force in achieving some of the most significant environmental successes in California: California Environmental Quality Act (1970), Coastal Act (1972), Wild Rivers (1973), Rail Bond Act (1990), Tejon Ranch (2008) and many, many more.

Honor and celebrate the people who have made our successes possible. Enjoy an evening of Chef’s tastings and tapas, hosted beer and wine, entertainment, prizes and an auction of uniquely themed items and vacations — all at the beautiful City Club of San Francisco. Auction items include a 5 day stay in a Maui Condo during the 2017 whale season, a vacation to a beautiful Mendocino home built around a Redwood tree, 3 Nights at private oceanview estate in La Jolla, a trip (and rafting) at Camp Lotus in Coloma, and more.

This is sure to be the best celebration you will attend all year!

Emceed by the thought-provoking Bill Press (first full-time Executive Director of PCL).
