May 14, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

There is nothing like a mother’s love and wild animal mothers are no exception.  From the deepest oceans to the leafy treetops – mothers of all species are caring for their babies with dedication and courage.  Join us at IslandWood on Mother’s Day for a celebratory look at the lives of wild animal mothers and the work they do to nourish, teach and protect their young.


At this special event, we are creating a nourishing space for you to relax in a beautiful setting, and honor and nurture a mom or mother-figure in your life.  We’ll have trail-side ‘drop-in’ activities for your crew that you can visit between 12:00 PM – 2:00 PM, or feel free to just enjoy our six-miles of trails as they pass by natural landscapes that soothe, captivate and inspire.



We have a brunch window from 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM.  You may arrive at the start at 10:00 AM, or anytime within that window to enjoy a mother’s day smorgasbord.


You can also arrive at 9:30 AM, pick up a frisbee, or kick a ball in our large meadows, and run off some energy with the littles ones, and then just come in when you’re hungry. Just remember – brunch will close down at 12:00 PM, so give yourself & your ducklings enough time to enjoy a leisurely meal.


Our menu includes a selection of fresh and seasonal bites along with tea, coffee, fresh fruit juices and Mama’s Mimosas.  Cheers to you!
