OSPREY, FL (May 5, 2017) More than 200 guests gathered under oak hammock on the banks of the Myakka River last Sunday to celebrate the conservation of Triangle Ranch and enjoy a farm-to-table luncheon benefiting Conservation Foundation of the Gulf Coast. Triangle Ranch owner and philanthropist, Elizabeth Moore, partnered with Conservation Foundation to permanently conserve the 1,134-acre Triangle Ranch last year which is home to more than 120 species of birds and three miles of the Myakka River. Chef Paul Mattison prepared a three-course menu featuring locally sourced food, highlighting the importance of sustainable and natural food practices. The event raised funds to support Conservation Foundation’s work saving land and connecting people to nature.
