mvfnlogo2014Looking for contributions of items for a silent auction to be held at the Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists (MVFN) Spring Gathering dinner and talk, May 21, 2015. We are looking for . . . . quality items, offers of experiences, your skills, tours (nature or garden), gourmet meals, spa treatments, greens fees; any good idea will be considered. All proceeds will go to the campaign to protect Burnt Lands Alvar from development.

If you believe that wilderness and rare natural areas should be managed with care, then join MVFN in its effort to ensure Burnt Lands Alvar and its unique habitats remain intact for future generations to enjoy. Please contact Bob Smith at 613-624-5307 or (that’s ‘bob’ underscore ‘o’ underscore ‘links’) with your item, your offer or your idea/s.

Further information about the Burnt Lands Alvar Campaign can be found on the MVFN website. Ticket information will soon be available for the Spring Gathering; tickets will include a reception, dinner, an excellent keynote speaker, and of course the silent auction!
