Decked Out!


It’s back! Please join us this September for the return of our annual Decked Out fundraiser! 

The evening will include light fare, Inland Bays oysters, an open bar, and waterfront views rivaling any on the Delaware coast. Enjoy the sunset over Indian River Bay while local musician Keith Mack serenades. Then, things will liven up with a live art auction featuring pieces from Gallery One artists! For a sneak peek of the art offerings, click here! All proceeds from the auction will benefit the Lessons in Nature at the James Farm Ecological Preserve capital campaign

In partnership with Sussex County, a dedicated group of volunteers has been working quietly to raise funds for our efforts to enhance the James Farm Ecological Preserve for education, recreation, and restoration. During this year’s Decked Out, we’ll be celebrating our success to date and asking the community to help us reach our final goal!
