Dine and Discover Meal

A Sunday Evening of Nature, Delicious Food & Connection

We’re thrilled to announce Dine & Discover, a new dinner series on our Bainbridge Island campus. Join us for the perfect Sunday evening, with live music, a beautiful meal, and complementary wine pairings. Dinner will be prepared by Executive Chef Jim White and his team, who are passionate about bringing sustainably sourced foods and thoughtful dining experiences to students and adults alike. What a delicious way to support IslandWood’s innovative environmental education programs!

Pacific Northwest casual – jeans, flannels, and fleeces are welcome!
