    OSPREY, FL (March 30, 2017) Conservation Foundation of the Gulf Coast announces the inaugural Feast Upon the Fields on Sunday, April 30, 12:30pm at the newly conserved Triangle Ranch on the Myakka River. The 1,134-acre ranch, permanently conserved in October 2016, protects the watershed of Myakka River State Park and the character and natural integrity of this region. It is home to three miles of the Myakka River and more than 120 species of birds and many animals including the threatened crested caracara. New Triangle Ranch owner and philanthropist, Elizabeth Moore, was eager to share her property for the purpose of this event.

    Well-known chef Paul Mattison will highlight locally sourced foods in a farm-to-table experience. The event is made possible in part by exclusive media partner The Herald-Tribune Media Group.
