As part of WildWings Festival 2015 the Somenos Marsh Wildlife Society is holding a Facebook Art Auction. Two artworks, one by world renowned Robert Bateman, the other by popular local photographer Barry Hetschko are currently on the auction block. They are both on display upstairs at Just Jakes Restaurant in downtown Duncan. Both are beautifully framed by Excellent FrameWorks - EJ Hughes Gallery.

Bids on each start at $200. All the money raised from the auction of these two pieces will be used to help us build the new viewing tower at the Somenos Marsh Open Air Classroom. The tower will be tall enough to provide a 360 degree view of the Somenos Marsh Conservation Area and large enough to accommodate a class of school children. It is the final piece planned to complete the educational infrastructure at the Open Air Classroom. We have $14,000 in the bank already. Please help us reach our final goal!!!! 

Bidding is by email (info@somenosmarsh.com) or Facebook message. Bids will be posted and published on this page as each new bid comes in. The bidding ends November 15th when the WildWings art show comes down.
