** Donating an Item to the Auction **

Skagit Land Trust is searching for unique items and experiences for this year’s auction. As the Trust’s largest fundraiser of the year, our annual auction has become a crucial part of our efforts to protect Skagit’s most special places for all who live and work here and for generations to come.

Not sure what to donate? In addition to the great items we have featured at past auctions, we know that bidders are looking for unique experiences and adventures. Perhaps you have a vacation rental or second home to share. Whether a rustic cabin or city condo it’s sure to be a hit.

Maybe you have a special talent and would like to guide a birding walk, offer an art class, or a couple of hours of computer skills. Let’s get creative!
