In one week, Rocky Mountain Wild staff, board, and supporters will gather at Silver Vines Winery in Arvada to celebrate another year of biodiversity in the Rocky Mountain region and raise some funds to ensure that our wild will be protected for another year!
We think you should be there, and we’re pretty sure after seeing what we have planned, you’ll want to be!
Silent Auction Packages that you don’t want to miss!
This year, we’ve put together some amazing packages for science nerds, adrenaline junkies, ski bums, exercise enthusiasts, folks in desperate need of a vacation or staycation, those who love Colorado treasures or oddities, art fans, foodies, sustainability seekers, and sportball fanatics! We know that you’ll find your ultimate package in our line up!
Vegan and vegetarian tapas from Mezcla Maggie!
Maggie has put together a menu that has me drooling every time I see it, and they all have fun names too! Vegan “blooming bundles” (red pepper cashew puffs), vegan “patata nests” (sweet potato pancakes with lime cilantro relish), vegan and dairy-free “Rocky Mountain Rocks” (chocolate peanut butter bites), and so many other sustainable vegan and vegetarian tapas that will leave you more than satisfied.
Amazing wines from Silver Vines Winery!
Last night, Tehri and I sampled some of the wines that will be served next week (it’s hard work, but someone had to do it), and I can attest to their absolute deliciousness! Each registration to the event will get you two free wine tickets. You can choose between Chardonnay, Reisling, Grandview Reserve, or Merlot. Really, it doesn’t matter which you choose, it will be wonderful!
A wild trivia contest that could win you some pretty amazing prizes!
We’re hosting our first ever pub-style wild trivia contest with questions about our work, about wildlife and wild lands in our region, and more! The winning team will collect an amazing bag of prizes including coozies from Mountain Khakis, entrance tickets to a Comedy Works show, and more!
A heads or tails raffle for a beautiful John Fielder’s Colorado photograph!
You can enter the heads or tails raffle for the chance to win a gorgeous framed John Fielder’s Colorado photograph! The photograph will be on display all evening, so you can take a good look and fall in love with the magnificent piece of art.
Opportunities to take direct action to protect Gunnison sage-grouse!
Our #StandWithGunny action station will also be at the event, meaning you can sign a postcard, color a coloring page, or in other ways take action to help protect the most critical habitat for this vital member of the sagebrush ecosystem.
Be sure to register and join us at the event. We think it will be fun, but we think it will be more fun if you’re there! We’ve also decided to lift the ticket limit, so, the more the merrier!
