This enchanting event is the museum’s annual fundraiser and benefits the Academy’s mission to advance research, education and public engagement in biodiversity and environmental science. This year we’ve added a new element to the event, Cocktails! Cuisine from the Collections: Cocktail Edition will feature imaginative pairings of gourmet foods with creative cocktails – all inspired by the Academy’s collection of more than 18 million plant and animal specimens. Academy scientists will be on hand with scientific specimens to help guests learn a little bit of the natural history behind the delicious food they’re enjoying.
