Friends of Johnson Nature Center Forest to Table Fundraiser

September 9, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Johnson Nature Center is Oakland County’s hidden gem. It is a publicly accessed forty acre site located in Bloomfield Township that offers a great escape for all ages. Chef Chris Gadulka from Sylvan Table and Chef Johnny Prepolec from Alchemi will be catering a strolling dinner of forest foods throughout our trails at the Johnson Nature Center. Our featured Chefs will intertwine Michigan native and invasive species of flora and fauna throughout multiple stations. Attendees will have an opportunity to connect with our natural environment and engage their senses in a unique way. Guests will stroll the trails as they listen to live music and taste Chefs’ creations. Naturalists on site will provide education and community awareness around ecological conservation. The evening will conclude with sweet endings, photo opportunities, and performing artists.
