raised at last year’s auction
The “Dream Auction” supports our bursary program providing financial aid to people who would not otherwise be able to attend this annual conference. With over $13,000 raised at last year’s auction, our grants will enable students and/or representatives of smaller environmental non-governmental organizations to attend this year’s conference.
