MRVAC's annual Holiday fundraiser will be held on Thursday, November 20th starting at 6:00pm at the Nothwestern Health Sciences University at 2501 W 84th Street (& Penn Avenue) in Bloomington.

Some of the items that will be available include Nikon Action Extream 8x40 waterproof binocs, gift certificates from Bylerly's, a quality scope and tripod and as always, there will be plenty of goodies available to purchase. Home made jams, jellies, bread, apples, gift certificates, bird feeders, and dare I say Jack Telford's wood turnings, art, books, sporting goods, products from Great Harvest, Byerly's, Valley Natural foods, Aveda, and Caribou Coffee.   While the bidding can be hot especially for the incredible home made jams and baked goodies, some things will go for a fraction of what they normally cost.  

This year monies raised will again provide bus transportation for students to travel to the Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge, as well as provide funds for the refuge to hire environmental education interns to help teach the students. MRVAC also supplies a scholarship to a student wishing to go the Hunt Hill Audubon Center. Monies raised also are going to the Audubon Center of the North Woods to construct a brand new Corvid mews for their educational Raven. Your monies from this auction will allow us to do fund these worthwhile projects, and more, to help educate our youth about the wonders of nature.  Last year we were able to disburse $10,000 in donations to these causes.  Help us to that again this year.
