The Little Kitchen that Could: Isaac’s Café Specials, July 25-29

Isaac’s Café has been referred to as the “Little Kitchen that could,” and I have to agree.   Every day, the staff of Isaac’s takes our little corner of the Visitor Center and transforms it into a symphony of taste and tempting smells.  When Isaac Bernheim envisioned a place for people to connect with nature, I […]

Black Bear Spotted at Bernheim Forest

A black bear was spotted in Bernheim Forest last Sunday (July 17) in the Cypress Tupelo Swamp area of Lake Nevin, sitting in Guerilla Creek.

A Forest Oasis: Isaac’s Café Specials July 11-15, 2016

I have more than once referred to Bernheim and Isaac’s Café as a forest oasis.  This past week made me realize that many of you also see it in that light: whether it’s a weary traveler needing to break up a long trip on I-65 and stumbles upon our little slice of heaven, an employee […]

Vanishing Acts: That’s a Wrap

Oh my how time flies. It seems like just yesterday that Vanishing Acts was arriving at Bernheim, but now it’s time to say goodbye.
