Friends of the Johnson Nature Center Forest to Table Strolling Dinner
September 10, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Friends of the Johnson Nature
Center has partnered with renowned
Sylvan Table Chef, Chris Gadulka,
bringing our community a unique
Forest to Table dinner experience.
Featuring six courses, Chef Gadulka
will intertwine Michigan invasive/
native species of fauna and flora as ingredients in his dish creations served throughout a quarter-mile trail. Guests will have an opportunity to connect with the natural environment and engage their senses. There
will be live music with performing artists, an open bar, and interactive demonstrations to shed light on the ecological issues we face in our hyperlocal environment. This evening event is set to conclude lakeside with photography, sweets, and a fire show under the harvest moon. Proceeds benefit education programs and special improvement projects for the Johnson Nature Center, a true Oakland County hidden gem. Capital improvements, like the visitor center building, pond, docks, and
invasive remediation, are made possible because of fundraiser efforts and volunteer stewardship. Do not miss this celebration of culinary delights and ecological conservation. Admission is $200; VIP tickets are $275.
