2nd Annual Wild Collections, Expeditions for Education Fundraiser


Last May, Quarryhill held its first annual fundraiser for education, Wild Collections, Expeditions for Education.  It was a grand success, with over 200 guests, great food & music, wonderful entertainment, a dynamic speaker, and most importantly, tremendous support from the community for our education program.  This May we will hold our second annual Wild Collections, Expeditions for Education on Saturday, May 17th from 5:30 – 8:00 PM.  

In 2013, the number of students in Quarryhill’s education program increased by 10% and this year for the first time we are having to turn away classrooms.  Sonoma County schools have recognized the quality of our program and we need your help to accommodate this growing demand. Our hope is to raise enough money through this event to expand our education program and serve many more students and schools, thus offering the valuable opportunity to advance their science education.  With the support of your sponsorship, together we will foster the next generation of outdoor enthusiasts, naturalists and future scientists.

We hope you will attend. By doing so, not only will you be helping a great cause, but it’s going to be a great party.

Here is a sneak peek at what’s in store  . . .

Upon arrival, you will be greeted with champagne and then escorted on a cart through bowers of beautiful flowering dogwoods, roses, irises and rhododendrons.  Once in the garden, stroll along the paths to further experience its magic and breathtaking views.  Listen to the sweet sounds of running waterfalls and smooth jazz while teasing your palate with a delectable nibble along the way.  As you reach the center of the garden, indulge in exquisite Asian-inspired cuisine while sipping a cocktail with friends.  At the conclusion of the evening, world-renowned botanist, Sir Peter Crane, Dean of the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies, will speak about the importance of educating our children about nature, followed by a brief Fund-A-Need to benefit Quarryhill's education program.

Let’s all work together to improve education for students in Sonoma County.
