Highland Voices OHA Fund Raiser
March 24, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm
25 Years of the Okanogan Highlands Alliance
On Friday, March 24th, OHA celebrates 25 years of action with a fundraising CD release concert and dinner at the Community Cultural Center of Tonasket. Highland Voices is a compilation album of eco-conscious musicians that expresses our sense of place, concern for conservation and clean water, and the beauty of our natural world. Join us for an evening of delicious food, original music, drawings for special items, auctions, and appreciation for the people who have been a part of OHA over the years.
A small group of people can really make a difference. Twenty-five years ago, a group of neighbors formed the Okanogan Highlands Alliance (OHA) when a large scale, open pit, cyanide leach gold mine was proposed on Buckhorn Mountain. We have grown into an organization that focuses on mine monitoring, education, ecological restoration, and natural resource conservation issues affecting the Okanogan Highlands and beyond.
Songs were part of what inspired us back then, and music — both old and new — continues to bring us together, instill hope, and galvanize action. Musicians from around the region have contributed songs for a new compilation album that speaks to OHA’s continued efforts to protect, restore, and preserve local land, water, and wildlife.
