The Wilderness Center announced a virtual silent auction and benefit called For Wilderness Sake! All members of the public are invited to take part when the auction kicks off on Saturday, Nov. 21 at 7 p.m.

This year The Wilderness Center’s mission of education, conservation and community is depending on public donations to help cross the funding gap created by COVID-19.

“The funds raised through this benefit auction will allow us to continue adapting to our changing environment in order to meet the needs of our community; continue developing outstanding online programming for people throughout all walks of life; continue restoring and protecting woodlands, wetlands, grasslands and even our dark skies for all to enjoy; and continue bringing people together through their love of nature,” TWC executive director Jeanne Gural said.

The auction will include the following:

Mushroom hunt for four with Don King

Don King will teach how to find, identify, prepare and preserve the dozens of mushrooms that grow in Ohio. King’s private hunt for four guests will last up to three hours and will take place at West Branch State Park. Each participant will receive a season-appropriate laminated Mushroom ID Card and can keep all of the edible mushrooms they find.
