The historic Visitor's Center inside Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve comes alive SATURDAY, OCTOBER 22, 2016, for our second-annual Wine in the Pines fundraiser benefiting plans for a new Children's Pavilion near the lodge—a necessary facility for sun protection during docent-led programs, as well as special activities. 

This unique event makes for a lovely afternoon and includes: a lively GATHERING of friends and supporters of the Reserve; a TASTING of top WINES and CRAFT BEERS; a DELICIOUS REPAST catered by famed Seaside Market of Cardiff; a SILENT AUCTION including great items, meals, and activities donated by local businesses and artists; an ART EXHIBIT by noted San Diego-area en plein air Impressionist painters; and live music by ED AND HIS LIFEGUARD BAND.

 Last year was a sellout. Tickets on sale NOW. A special fundraiser for the children's program's Pavilion.
