Each ticket includes two complimentary glasses of Silver Vines award-winning wine, a full spread of vegan and vegetarian tapas, a “Do Good” bag filled with goodies to help you live a more sustainable life, and entrance to our wildlife themed game of the evening. And you’ll be able to take direct action to help biodiversity!

Bites & Brews for Biodiversity attendees will be able to participate in a silent auction with packages ranging from local business “date-nights,” to conservation-themed artworks, to vacation packages.

Rocky Mountain Wild has been on the forefront of many conservation projects, including conserving the sagebrush habitat for the greater sage-grouse, working with the Denver Zoo on the Front Range Pika Project to study the habitat and activities of the American pika, working toward the development of the I-70 Wild Byway, and protecting Wolf Creek Pass from development. The fundraiser is designed to assist in the continuation of Rocky Mountain Wild’s work.
