On Monday, August 29, an end-of-summer social, celebrating the bounty nature provides in New Jersey, will be hosted by The Nature Conservancy at Ninety Acres, Natirar, 2 Main Street, Peapack-Gladstone. At this roaming cocktail-style dinner, attendees will follow a “trail map” through dining and drinking stations and learn about nature conservation in New Jersey. The local and sustainable menu will offer something for everyone, and experts from The Nature Conservancy will be on hand for casual conversation throughout the evening. Enjoy a themed cocktail, wine and beer, and take a walking tour of the Natirar farm. Collect a stamp at each of the conservation stations on the trail map, and then enter to win amazing prizes, including an incredible grand prize of Ninety Acres’ chef, David Felton, personally cooking for you and 7 guests at your home. Free swag bags for all guests. 6 to 9 PM; $60. Tickets at this website.
