Night in for Nature: The Birds & the Bees
Grab your sweetheart and learn something new about The Birds & the Bees this Valentine’s Day, as The Wilderness Center hosts a special Night in for Nature virtual program and fundraising dinner on Friday, February 12th, at 6:00 p.m.
Senior Naturalist Carrie Elvey will present this PG-13 program, which is a light-hearted look at the romantic lives of animals. For example, did you know that city birds sing shorter courtship songs than country birds? Or that the antennae of a male mosquito will vibrate to the frequency of a compatible female’s flight pattern when she flies by? Talk about ‘operating on the same frequency’!
Delicious, locally-produced fare from Chef Derek Suhoski of Wholesome Valley Farm will include a lavender honey glazed duck breast, spelt risotto with duck confit, and sous vide carrots with orange, thyme, butter and coriander. A video offering re-heating instructions will be provided to all registrants. All ticket purchases will also include one bottle of dry riesling from M Cellars winery in Geneva, Ohio.
Representatives from M Cellars will offer attendees a video tour of their cellars, and representatives from Wholesome Valley Farm will also share information on the sustainable farms which are providing the evening’s meal.
Attendees can choose a meal for one (or tasting for two) for $65, or two meals for $90. Home delivery is available to the Canton and Massillon area, within 20 miles of TWC, for an additional $15 fee. Pick-ups and deliveries will take place on Thursday, February 11th, and Friday, February 12th.
Meal bags should be refrigerated and you must be 21 or older to participate (ID will be required). Due to the wine sale and applicable laws, funds will be collected through Ohio City Provisions and donated to The Wilderness Center.
