A Sunday Evening of Nature, Delicious Food & Connection



Our February dinner is officially SOLD OUT! To join the waitlist, please contact Julia Myrick at philanthropy@islandwood.org, and be sure to check out our March dinner here!


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!


Seats for our September dinner sold out quickly, so buy your tickets soon.



As it’s the month of love, our February dinner will include an optional “What’s Love Got to Do With It?” talk presented by our staff naturalist, Christina Doherty. We promise, it’s one not to be missed!

Optional Talk Overview | “What’s Love Got to Do With It?”
Birds do it. Bees do it. Exactly how is the question. Over one billion years ago life on Earth started reproducing sexually and things got…weird. We’ll journey through the animal, plant and fungi kingdoms and reveal the secret sex lives of some familiar species here on Bainbridge Island and the Puget Sound in a lively and visual presentation. How do fruit flies proposition one another? What reptile bears live young? We’ll uncover the bizarre truth behind courtship ritual, mating techniques and adaptations all happening in your backyard. Bring your curiosity and your sense of humor for this light-hearted, yet scientific soiree!


Dress: Pacific Northwest casual – jeans, flannels, fleeces welcome!


Transportation: For those of you coming from Seattle, ferries leave Seattle at 3:50 and 4:45pm. You can drive your car onto the ferry and park at IslandWood.


Cost: $100 per person includes optional “What’s Love Got To Do With It?” talk, live music, three-course meal, beer & wine, and support of environmental education.


If you can’t make it on February 9th, don’t fret! We have another great Dine & Discover dinner planned for March 29, 2020.
