On Sunday, April 28, 2019, the Wildling Museum of Art and Nature will hold its Annual Spring Barbeque, sponsored by Judy and Jack Stapelmann.  This event is an opportunity to spend an afternoon at a beautiful outdoor location while supporting the Wildling at its most important fundraiser of the year, sipping wine, eating delicious food, and enjoying auctions, live music, and more.

The Wildling Museum of Art & Nature presents the Wilderness Spirit Award to a person or group who strives to bring awareness to natural places through various platforms. This year the Wildling Museum will honor Jean Schuyler with the Wilderness Spirit Award. Jean has spent a lifetime supporting nonprofits throughout Santa Barbara County and has been a very generous supporter of the Wildling Museum and other environmental organizations. She truly has a heart that embraces wilderness preservation and education and has made a real difference in our community.

The 16th annual barbeque will be held at Firestone Vineyard in Los Olivos from 3 to 6 PM. With a storied past in wine history, one that helped to establish Santa Barbara County as a significant wine growing region, the now Foley-owned property is in the midst of rolling hills, mature vineyards, and distant mountains.

Sponsors and their guests will be invited to an exclusive VIP Reception at 2 PM, before the start of the event to meet the honoree and learn more about the venue. Special thanks to Silver Sponsors George and Denise Rose and Northern Trust. To purchase tickets or sponsor this event, visit, stop by the Wildling Museum, or call 805-686-8315. Space is limited, and advanced reservations are required.
