Nature's Nurturers: A Celebration of Mothers

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.  

After the 30 minute indoor presentation, you may enjoy our grounds and trails with your family and then join us in the Dining Hall starting at 2:30pm for a special Mother’s Day Tea, IslandWood Style! The menu will include a selection of fresh and seasonal bites along with tea, coffee and fresh fruit juices.

The presentation, given by a naturalist and mother of three, is family-friendly, so please bring your little ones!

Our full menu is shown below.  We source many ingredients from our organic garden and local farms.  Vegan and gluten-free options will also be available.
