Wander the Wild 2023 – The Most Successful to Date!

The Highlands Center for Natural History celebrated the culmination of its 15th Annual Wander the Wild Online and Live Auction on October 1, 2023, at the Windmill House in Chino Valley, Arizona.  The beautiful outdoor setting, delightful live music, delicious appetizers and wines, superb auction offerings from dozens of supportive donors,  amazingly benevolent sponsors and donors, collaborative volunteers and staff, and generous hearts of over 100 attendees combined to create the most joyful and financially successful event to date!

Wander the Wild is the Highlands Center for Natural History’s signature annual fundraising event. All profits from the auction directly fund youth educational programs which enrich over 10,000 children annually and provide scholarships for children and elementary school classes to attend outdoor programs based on exploration and discovery at our Lynx Creek site in the Prescott National Forest.

A big thank you to YOU, our tireless Wander the Wild Committee members, generous Sponsors, Donors, and Bidders, and efficient HCNH and Windmill House staff for your enthusiastic commitment to the success of Wander the Wild.

Each and every person involved in this collaborative undertaking has made possible life-changing experiences and wonder-filled opportunities for area youth. Our gratitude for you is heartfelt and immeasurable.
