Art for Trees: Online Silent Art Auction for Tree Planting

Bid on Local Artwork to Help Us Plant More Trees In Your Community

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, several of SNC’s in-person fundraising events, including its annual charity golf tournament, were cancelled. These fundraising events have previously funded environmental education programs for local youth and public Conservation Area accessibility features.

SNC will instead be hosting an online silent art auction in October 2020, with funds raised going towards tree planting in the community.

Trees and forests provide many benefits and services to society, including clean water, recreational opportunities, wildlife habitat, carbon storage, watershed protection, flood and erosion control, and improved human health. They also help to beautify the landscape and provide shade and aesthetic appeal.

Our Goal

SNC is a not-for-profit, community-based environmental agency that relies on donations and self-generated revenue to protect and enhance the local environment.

Since 1990, SNC has planted more than 3.4 million trees across its watershed jurisdiction thanks to community and municipal partnerships and fundraising initiatives.

Over 140,000 trees were planted by SNC this year; but, with your support, we are hoping to plant 200,000 in 2021.
