2022 Summit Silent Auction

As part of the Summit, a silent auction is being held to support the Wisconsin Master Naturalist program. You can be key in helping to raise funds for this strong statewide resource for quality training about Wisconsin’s natural world. We are seeking items, unique experiences and gift certificates that would appeal to an environmentally focused audience.

Your support will help increase understanding of Wisconsin’s natural world, encourage stewardship and local engagement, and assist the coordination and celebration of these amazing volunteer efforts. Contact info@wimasternaturalist.org to get more information. All bidding will be done in-person during the October 7 evening social.
