Wednesday evening October 3 to Friday afternoon October 5

The 2018 SAF Convention raffle and silent auction will support both the Foresters’ Fund and Kurt Gottschalk Science Fund (KGSF). While the Foresters’ Fund assists local SAF units in achieving the goals of the Society, the KGSF supports the development and dissemination of scientific findings and new technology for natural resource professionals to facilitate science-informed management.
All funds raised will be split 50/50 between the two funds. Additionally, the KGSF portion will be matched by a generous contribution from the estate of W.D. Hagenstein.

New this year is an online auction that will occur concurrently with the silent auction and raffle. All online auction items will be available to preview in the expo hall, but these items will be bid on electronically. Attendees will be emailed an invitation to join the auction prior to convention. Visit the Raffle and Silent Auction booth in the expo hall if you have any questions during the event.
