Get great gifts and make a difference along the way!
Our third annual auction launches today! From seeds to honey and tea, this year's lineup of items has so much to offer. Our featured item is a hand-made bench from Better Construction LLC, a family-owned business in Johnson VT run by Alan and Catrina McKnight. Their daughter has attended Water Wanderings for three years in a row and we're so excited for their generous donation to this year's auction. We also have a variety of outdoor gear items and a City Market gift card, with 17 items total!
We are so grateful to this year's auction sponsors: Kit Lender, City Market, Onion River Outdoors, High Mowing Seeds, Heidi Wilson, Better Construction VT, Vermont Artisan Coffee & Tea, Butternut Mountain Farm, Outdoor Gear Exchange, and PowerPlay Sports.

Water Wanderings is entering its seventh season next summer and your support is helping us chart a path toward financial sustainability as well as expansion. We're excited to be expanding to four sessions next summer, including a longer session for 13-15 year olds and two family camps. All auction proceeds will go towards ensuring Water Wanderings can continue to offer scholarships and a sliding scale while lessening our reliance on volunteers for administrative work.
I am deeply grateful for our shared passion to empower young people through inclusive outdoor adventure, community building and environmental education that nourishes resilience and integrity. If you would like to contribute to Water Wanderings, but don't fancy any of the auction items, please donate to our Water Wanderings is Growing year-end campaign, or become a peer-to-peer fundraiser and help us expand the reach of our networks. The first 20 people to donate $100+ or become a $10+ monthly donor will receive a copy of the 2022 liberation calendar from Ricardo Levins Morales Art Studio.
Every gift makes a difference!
