Final Days of Audubon Auction!
Time is running out! Skidaway Audubon’s online auction ends May 24. The auction features locally crafted wildlife-themed yard art, and benefits Skidaway Audubon’s many island-wide environmental projects.
The auction began on May 18, and bidding closes at 5 p.m. on May 24. To bid, simply visit www.skidawayaudubon.org and click on the link to the bid sheets.
The 46 colorful, hand-painted objects were supposed to be part of Audubon’s fundraiser/golf tournament that was cancelled due to the pandemic. All of the giant butterflies, bluebirds, bats, and turtles are made of wood and coated in polyurethane so they can be displayed indoors or outdoors. They range in size from 16 to 35 inches.
Proceeds from the auction will help fund several initiatives, including efforts to attract monarch butterflies and other pollinators, the Diamondback Terrapin turtle rescue project, maintenance of the largest network of bluebird houses in the Southeast, and efforts to erect bat houses to reduce mosquito populations on the island. Auction winners will receive an email with instructions for picking up their yard art. Payment is by cash or checks made payable to Skidaway Audubon at the time of pickup.
Visit www.skidawayaudubon.org today, and add whimsy and color to your garden while helping important conservation efforts that enhance the community.
