Out & About: Yampatika’s 17th annual “Wild Edible Feast”

Yampatika’s 17th annual "Wild Edible Feast," a nature-to-table fundraising event, was held at Haymaker on June 8. The event featured small plates created by Haymaker's talented chefs, Ariel Robey and Chris Wyant,  made up from a variety of Yampa Valley wild edibles. On the menu this year was black bear, elk, goose, duck eggs and freshly harvested wild plants. Funds raised went toward connecting people to nature by providing environmental education. In addition to a variety culinary food stations, the event featured educational activities and a silent auction. Quality proteins were contributed by Moonhill Dairy, Bruce and Kate Logan, Jerry Fox, Ciao Gelato, Gary Pon, Kris Brannan and Elkhead Ranch.
