About Our Auction

This year's auction is in support of rare's Every Child Outdoors (ECO) program, which delivers curriculum-based outdoor environmental programs for K-12 including specialized Mirrored Research programs - programs that allow students to "mirror" the research and monitoring activities conducted on the reserve.

We also offer public events to help inform and to engage with the community on a variety of environmental, arts-based and Indigenous-focused topics - all while having fun.

More than 18,000 students have gone through our school-based and youth environmental education program. Help us continue to provide children the opportunity to develop the knowledge, skills, values and motivation necessary to become environmentally responsible citizens!

About rare Charitable Research Reserve

The rare Charitable Research Reserve is an urban land trust and environmental institute in Waterloo Region/Wellington, with its first four locations protecting almost 1,000 acres of highly sensitive lands. Since inception, rare has taken care of the land on behalf of the community through the use of Western tools in conservation, research and education. As rare becomes engaged in reconciliation with the Indigenous Peoples of Turtle Island (North America), these pillars have gained flexibility and now equally include and value Indigenous ways of knowing and being — becoming three strands of a strong braid. Together we will steward these lands with respect for generations past, present and those yet to come, intact in perpetuity with trees more than 250 years old, 24 habitat types, and 6 of 8 pre-settlement landscapes.
