An Unforgettable Night Under the Stars


One of my favorite, and most fun, nights of the year at Riveredge is fast approaching, and I wanted to be sure I personally invited you to join me in the celebration.

Our annual Farm-To-Table Dinner on Saturday, September 10 is a chance to feast on incredible local food prepared by a talented chef, to walk in the prairies, to meet and mingle with community and business leaders passionate about Riveredge and environmental education, and to enjoy an unforgettable night of revelry under the stars and swaying trees.

It’s also vital to ensuring we can continue to give 35,000 people meaningful experiences in the great outdoors each year, and that we are able to continue maintaining and protecting 379 acres of wild Wisconsin, a sanctuary that has provided families wonder, relaxation, and adventure for almost 50 years now.

If you believe in the importance of nature and Riveredge like I do, please consider joining us for this night that truly puts the fun in fundraiser. We’ve even got some very special live auction items that will allow you to further your support of our work while enjoying some uniquely Riveredge experiences:

  • Be one of the very few people to experience, in person, baby peregrine falcons being banded by WE Energies before they leave the nest
  • Canoe the legendary Bois Brule River (fished by Presidents and traversed by fur traders) with renowned fly fishing guide Damian Wilmot, including a stay at the Stout Island Lodge, a getaway filled with rustic luxury
  • Spend an evening tasting exquisite foods from Sri Lanka, prepared by board member and native Gaurie Rodman, in a dinner for ten at a lovely country home
  • Go on a guided backpacking trip to your choice of three incredible up-North destinations with the greatest guide of all (me!)

I hope you’ll join me at a night I promise you won’t soon forget. To register, please visit our event page or give us a call at 262-375-2715.

See you under the stars,
