Huyck Preserve 2021 Virtual Silent Auction

An alternative annual benefit - coming together virtually for one more year

Welcome to the Huyck Preserve's second virtual silent auction. We look forward to seeing you in-person next year at our in-person Gala, but please enjoy this fun way to support the important work we do this year.

The Huyck Preserve and Biological Research Station is a non-profit membership organization dedicated to education, recreation, conservation, and research. Located in Rensselaerville in the beautiful hill country southwest of Albany, N.Y., our 2,072 acres attract researchers, educators, students, and recreationists. 

We rely on the steadfast support of our members and donors.

Thank you for your generosity, and enjoy the fun! We hope you find a treasure to brighten your day.


Don't forget our 50/50 Raffle!  We are dedicating this year's raffle proceeds to our continued efforts to protect the Preserve's hemlock forests against invasive hemlock woolly adelgid. If you'd like to help and have a chance to win the other 50% of the earnings, buy your raffle tickets before the end of the auction on Sunday. Get your tickets here!
