Join The Nature Conservancy of Oklahoma at our inaugural fundraising event, Malicious but Delicious on Thursday July 25th at The Mansion at Woodward Park (2435 S Peoria Ave, Tulsa, Oklahoma 74114. 

Would you eat an invasive species? Now you can! The Nature Conservancy has challenged local chefs and restaurants to make you delicious dishes from (edible) invasive and native species as they compete for the coveted title, "Nature Chef." Malicious but Delicious is a community event designed to foster meaningful conversations on the importance of protecting our most at-risk areas in Oklahoma, through an Oklahoma-style cooking competition. Not only will your taste buds be entertained, but your ears will too! John Fullbright, Oklahoma-native and two-time Grammy nominated musician will perform live during your tasty adventures at Malicious but Delicious.We will also feature recycling and composting as an element to reduce our impact while still having a fantastic and educational event. Tickets include food and beverage for the evening! Come enjoy food, drinks, music, and more while supporting conservation in Oklahoma!



What does the event support?

Proceeds from Malicious but Delicious will provide funding for the stewardship activities and operational funds required to manage the 105,000+ acres that The Nature Conservancy protects in Oklahoma.

Will we really be eating invasive species like the zebra mussel or feral swine? I thought it wasn't safe to eat feral swine?

Don't worry! Inedible (not safe or tasty) ingredients will be swapped for more safe, delicious ingredients (i.e. pork for feral swine, mussels for zebra mussels, western red cedar for eastern, etc.)
