Dine & Discover

An Evening of Nature, Delicious Food & Connection

IslandWood was built explicitly for discovery — so that children, educators, and community members could discover more deeply the natural world around them. With our Dine & Discover series, we invite you to discover!


Discover our trails, treehouses, canopy tower, and suspension bridge. Discover something about your community and maybe yourself.


Join us on our Bainbridge Island campus for the perfect evening of live music, a beautiful meal, wine pairings, and an optional hike through our 250 acres of trails. What a delicious way to support IslandWood’s innovative environmental education programs. We only host this event four times a year, so we hope you can make it! 

Dinner will be prepared by Chef Jim White and his team, who are passionate about bringing sustainably sourced foods and thoughtful dining experiences to students and adults alike. Our meals are inspired by the seasons, featuring locally sourced ingredients as much as possible. We’re happy to accommodate specific dietary requests and you’ll be able to note those when purchasing your tickets.


See our December 2nd menu here!

Dinner is served family-style at community tables. If you’re joining a large group (8 people or more), please specify your group when purchasing tickets and we’ll be sure to reserve seats together for your group.

No need to get fancy! Casual dress is welcome.
