BC Marine Trails Silent Online Auction

Starts October 4th

The button will be activated October 4th and advertised in a BCMT newsletter and on social media.

Our online silent auction will launch on October 4, 2023 and run for the month of October. We currently have about 48 items+ to bid on.  The items vary from two recreation Sky10 Eddyline kayaks to Arctery’x backups to a John E. Marriott Baffin Bay print. We are very excited to create our first auction as an organization. Special thanks to our fundraising committee who have undertaken considerable volunteer work to bring this to fruition.


We are extremely thankful to the companies and businesses who provided donations toward our auction. It is only through cooperative and partnership work that we are able to create a world-class marine trail network. Auction funds will go toward our conservation and stewardship efforts. Working together!
