1st Annual Silent Auction: Don't miss the action, opening June 22nd!

How do you have an event for a community that extends around the globe? Have it online!

Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics invites you and your friends, family and colleagues to join us for our first annual Online Silent Auction, launching June 22nd. We have generous donations from many of our partners, and you won't want to miss the action! All of the proceeds from the Silent Auction will go to benefit Leave No Trace programs and outreach.

We will send out another communication via email at the start of the auction with a link to the site. Additionally, a link to the auction will be posted on the "More Ways to Give" section of the website. But if you want a preview of the goodies to come, you can keep checking back to the blog, the website, Twitter and Facebook for updates on the items for bid.

Not to be missed are prizes donated from many of our Corporate Partners, including:
  • The North Face
  • SmartWool
  • MSR / Therm-A-Rest / Platypus
  • Mountain Hardwear
  • Coleman
  • Subaru of America
  • Avid For Adventure
  • Colorado Mountain School
  • Keen
  • IAG Media
  • National Geographic Maps
  • Industrial Revolution
  • and many private donors (... Like a Gary Fisher Bike!)
For those who maybe don't need gear, or want to contribute in a different but equally meaningful way, we will also be hosting a Scholarship Sponsorship mini-event. Individuals can choose to "bid" on a scholarship that will be channeled in to our various Grants and Scholarships programs. Additionally, all donors to this program will have their names printed in the Annual Report.

Even better, this event is open to anyone! You don't have to be a Leave No Trace member, educator or volunteer to attend. So help us spread the word to your communities, and make this inaugural year go off with a bang!
