Our Award Banquet had to be cancelled, but the Auction goes on…online! 

Bravo to the community-minded businesses and families that have donated these items!  Bravo to the naturalists who’ve created an online auction in just a week!  And bravo to you, for being here to support meaningful programs for every elementary student in our community!

As many of you know, two of our key revenue sources, the annual banquet and our bookstore at the Mendenhall Glacier, have been quite imperiled this year, and our program delivery model faces a reorientation this Spring like we’ve never seen before.  We appreciate your participation and suport more than ever.  

We’ve got some great items for you to bring home, and some remarkable, formative experiences to raise funds for. From the very bottom of our hearts, thank you.

THANK YOU for making the auction a success!  It’s ended, and we hope you love the items you’ve won, which are visible here. Directions for paying have been emailed to winning bidders, check your spam folder if you don’t see them. You can also pay by navigating to the item page from its link below.

Being a part of this community has never felt more wonderful, and we’re so grateful for everyone’s participation in this, now 30 year old, organization!  We’ve raised some serious funds to give kids meaningful, formative experiences in nature for another year.   It’s what they need now more than ever.

This is obviously a particularly challenging time.  We want to acknowledge what our community and friends are doing—from serving on the front lines in hospitals, to conscientiously maintaining social distance.  We hope nature is a source of strength for everyone.  As you think of ways we can support you or others, please let us know, and see what we’re already up to here.

“Our society is navigating uncharted waters, but the natural world is strong and vibrant.  It remains a place for us to find deeper meaning, as well as find reassurance and solace in the most difficult times.  For children – and for all of us – finding and investing in that deeper connection is more important than ever.”
