It’s build your own taco night – with ecology in mind! Mt. Cuba’s natural lands support a variety of wild game, some of which have negative impacts on our native vegetation. Management of these species provides us with locally sourced, sustainable food. Join us for a casual evening around a campfire, grilling wild game meats and veggies, while sipping some drinks. Cash bar available. Fresh toppings and everything you need to make Mt. Cuba-inspired tacos will be provided.

This program takes place in person in Mt. Cuba Center natural lands on Sunday, October 15, 2023 (Rain Date: Sunday, October 22).
