Guests will enjoy a unique experience at this fundraiser for Nygren Wetland Preserve with the elegance of an outdoor dinner party under a big tent overlooking the prairie. The stunning landscape includes midsummer wildflowers like compass plant, false sunflower, grey-headed coneflower, wild bergamot and many more in full bloom, as well as the chance to see wildlife in their own habitat.
The social hour begins with signature drinks, cash bar and appetizers while listening to lively music. Guests will also delight in horse drawn carriage rides in the prairie prior to dinner or a walk on their own through the wildflowers. A nature themed silent auction will be open from the time guests arrive through the end of dinner. A live auction will follow dinner with exciting surprise experiences available for guests to bid on.
