Woodcock Nature Center Plans for Another Sold-Out Under the Harvest Moon Benefit Event

Sept 13 event promises a farm-to-table tasting prepared by local chef Sarah Bouïssou paired with wine tasting by Cellar XV and beer by Nod Hill

Silent and live auction top off the evening to benefit education programs at Wilton and Ridgefield’s Woodcock Nature Center.

(Wilton/Ridgefield, CT) —One of the largest fundraisers of the year for Woodcock Nature Center, Under the Harvest Moon on Friday, September 13 at 7pm promises to be another sold-out success. An enjoyable, relaxed evening of food, music and more will benefit the nature center’s well-loved programs in environmental education. Held in Woodcock’s picturesque candlelit pavilion, a highlight of the evening is a generous tasting of food carefully prepared by local chef Sarah Bouïssou of Sarah’s Wine Bar. Chef Bouïssou skillfully and quickly prepares the evening’s delectable meal from a selection of surprise fresh produce donated from local farms including Ambler Farm, Horseshoe Farm and The Hickories.
To begin the evening, No. 109 Cheese & Wine, along with other local vendors, will provide a sampling of artisanal cheeses and appetizers, and a generous wine-tasting selection will be provided by Ridgefield’s Cellar XV as guests enjoy music by local musicians including Horseshoe Farm’s farmer Pete Campbell. A tasting with craft brewers from Nod Hill Brewery will be on hand for beer-loving guests as well as selections from Two Roads and Palm.

The evening also includes a silent and live auction for a variety of popular items including unique Woodcock experiences such as catered dinners on the 149-acre preserve from local restaurants, children and family experiences such as animal encounters and birthday parties and, a very popular VIP Wreath Festival package. Attire for the casual, cocktail style fundraiser is “campground chic” and both old and new friends of Woodcock are welcome. Last year’s event sold out so guests are encouraged to purchase early!

All proceeds support Woodcock’s environmental education initiatives which include local outreach, school programs, camp scholarships and a variety of family events and adult education activities aimed at connecting with our natural world.
