The Silent Auction at BPV4 is an opportunity to support a worthy cause – a student research grant to be established by the CDM scientific advisory committee supporting snake research in the Chihuahuan Desert. This is a chance to clean out your office or house of those interesting and valuable herpetologically related items. Any item - including books, art, sculptures, famous autographs, field equipment, or clothing - is greatly appreciated. Please note that products made from amphibians, reptiles, or parts thereof, should not be donated. Donations are tax deductible. Receipts will be issued on request (please request receipt at time of donation). If you are interested in donating to the BPV4 Silent Auction, please contact Bob Ashley (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information. Note: You do not have to be present or registered for the meeting to donate items for this worthy cause. Thank you.
