Today's the day you've all been waiting for. The most obscure, out-of-the-ordinary conservation funding scheme is back and better than ever. MeatEater's Auction House of Oddities takes old stuff, new stuff, unique stuff, and downright strange stuff and turns it into crucial financial support for the preservation of public access to public lands.
Starting today, April 11, the House of Oddities will be running one grand finale auction cycle during which you can bid on a selection of one-of-a-kind items. We have more art, hides, knives, used gear, books, and memorabilia from your favorite members of the MeatEater crew, but we also have a few extreme standout items. We have a five-day Alaskan fishing excursion, a 10-course tasting dinner, and we even have a few bows and a rifle up for grabs.
Just like last time, 100% of the proceeds go to the MeatEater Land Access Initiative (LAI), our in-house public lands access campaign. Last year, we raised enough money through other fundraising intiatives to keep public access to Shiloh Pond in Maine open to the public forever. We proved that when the MeatEater community fights to protect what we hold dearest, we succeed.
So check out the next installment of the Auction House of Oddities and get your bidding hat on. Every auction closes at 12:00 p.m. MST on April 25, and winners will have seven days to complete their purchases. If the highest bidder fails to finalize their purchase, it will go to the next highest bidder.
We can’t wait to see what the LAI will accomplish next. Help us grow its reach and make a serious impact on the future of public lands access. We’re always looking to connect with you, so if you have a property in mind that may benefit from the LAI, submit it here. Let the bidding begin!
