Join national celebrity chef Graham Kerr, aka "The Galloping Gourmet," at the Learning Center for a very special meal and presentation.

Looking back over his long career, Kerr will share how the ways we prepare, consume and think about food has evolved over the decades. As a contribution to our ongoing Foodshed Initiative, Kerr will also share the many healthy living practices he’s adopted in his life, including the establishment of his first kitchen garden, and how even simple choices can have a positive impact for the good of society and the planet.

Kerr will work with our kitchen staff to create a delicious meal sourced from as many local ingredients as possible, utilizing the bounty of the Skagit Valley foodshed.

Your ticket includes an informal gourmet dinner prepared by our renowned kitchen staff, a presentation by our guest speaker, overnight accommodations in our guest lodges, continental breakfast and a naturalist-led activity in our wild and scenic neighborhood.
