In a guided walk inside Irvine Nature Center, see the woods through the eyes of Pat Bernstein, whose work is currently on view in our “Earth” exhibit, and chef Chris Amendola, of the restaurant Foraged. Free.
Author and photographer of Blink to See, Pat Bernstein, is an expert on pareidolia, the search for hidden images in nature. This pursuit sharpens the senses, stimulates creativity, and enriches interactions with the natural world by heightening awareness and mindfulness.
Chef Chris Amendola of Hampden’s Foraged Eatery actively forages for edibles which grow naturally in the woods of the Maryland Piedmont. He incorporates these local ingredients into the hyper-seasonal cuisine which is the trademark of his exciting new café.
