The Fall for Fish benefit dinner and silent auction will raise funds for the construction of an open-sided pavilion in the Rhododendron Preserve. The pavilion will provide shelter for volunteers and students taking part in outdoor classes in the Preserve.
The evening starts at 4 pm at the Preserve with social hour and certified Salmon-Safe wine tasting. While enjoying the wine, take some time to peruse a silent auction held in the yurt and bid to win some great prizes!
The benefit will continue in the historic Kitsap Cabin where you can relax by the cozy fireplace and experience the beauty of fall at the Preserve. Dinner will begin at 5 pm as we enjoy a family-style dinner together, while Amy Gulick, an acclaimed nature photographer and writer, talks about understanding the ecological connections within nature, any why preserving them is important to humanity. Amy will talk part science, part humor, and part adventure, while she inspires, educates, and motivates us to take a closer look at nature and it’s relevance to all of us. We are excited to have Amy share her talents with our dinner guests! Following dinner, we will announce the winners of the silent auction. Please join us for a fun filled evening to support the contraction of a pavilion!
Please note, the Preserve is a rustic location, so please wear sturdy shoes and dress warmly.
