Wander the Wild is the signature annual fundraiser to benefit the Highlands Center for Natural History. Typically an in-person outdoor and indoor event, this year’s auction is the best of both worlds, an on-line auction culminating with an in person auction outdoors at the lovely Windmill House! Can’t be at the live event? Don’t worry, while you may miss the live event the proxy bidding system will allow you to continue bidding up to a maximum bid of your choice.
WE ARE AMAZED AND GRATEFUL at the outpouring of donations for our auction! The Highlands Center staff and Wander the Wild committee members have added a wide variety of NEW PACKAGES.
The auction features outdoor experiential packages, travel to exciting destinations, educational field trips, nature inspired works of art by local artists and much more! With local, regional, national, and international experiences and destinations, the auction offers something for everyone!
Now, more than ever, we ask for the support of our community in making this event the most successful yet!
ALL PROFITS from the auction directly fund youth educational programs which enrich 10,000 children annually and provide scholarships for children and elementary school classes to attend outdoor programs based on exploration and discovery at our site in the Prescott National Forest.
The Highlands Center for Natural History’s 13th annual Wander the Wild Auction will start with an online auction from September 29 – October 2 and culminate with a live, outdoor auction at the Windmill House in Chino Valley on October 3. Tickets available at highlandscenter.org/wander-the-wild/.
