Night Owl series- Forage and Fermentation

Join us for a fun night of music, food, drinks and education!

Throughout the evening, local foraging and fermentation experts will be sharing their tips and secrets as you stroll about the Museum. Education partners include: California Native Plant Society of Monterey Bay, Fungus Federation of Santa Cruz, Big Sur Foragers Festival, and Happy Girl Kitchen.

The Museum will also be displaying a selection of items from our basement collection including botanical paintings by Sophie M. Fauntleroy, specimens of local flora from our herbarium, as well as a variety of eating and drinking vessels from around the world.

Custom foraged or fermented cocktails will excite your taste buds! Local wines from District 7 and beer from Alvarado Brewing Company will also be available. 

Live music with Lillie Lemon inside and Linda Arceo in the garden, plus a few surprises!

Come hungry because we will have Poke Lab Food Truck parked right in front of the museum, with tables outside to enjoy the late summer evening.

Special thanks to Glenn Gobel and Pixels for their partnership.

Tickets can be purchased here. This is an 18 and over event. Proceeds go to our Science Saturday program.

Foraging is searching for wild food resources.
Fermentation is a metabolic process that consumes sugar in the absence of oxygen. The products are organic acids, gases, or alcohol.
