Huyck Preserve 2023 Silent Auction

A Charity Auction Event

Bidding for our 2023 auction is now open and will run through Saturday, August 5, at 8pm.

Welcome to the Huyck Preserve's 2023 silent auction! Our online auction allows our supporters, both near and far, to participate. Auction items can be viewed through this site or in-person at our Gala cocktail party held outside the Eldridge Research Center on Lincoln Pond on August 5th. We hope you plan to attend. A limited number of tickets will be available at the door on the night of the event. Find your Gala tickets here.

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 2,000+ 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! Best wishes in finding 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 by noon on Saturday, August 5th. Get your tickets here!
