Art Auction Supports Black Bear Protection in NJ
Saving and protecting the dwindling black bear population of New Jersey will be the focus of the Third Annual Silent Art Auction and Dinner, to be held on Friday, May 29, 7pm, at the Morris Museum, 6 Normandy Heights Road,
Morristown. The event is sponsored by Bear Education and Resource (BEAR). Featured speakers are Jeff Tittle, director of the Sierra Club, NJ Chapter, and Elaine Dunn, BEAR’s education coordinator, who’ll discuss the true nature
and role of the American black bear as well as the threats they face.
The Auction and Dinner is the largest fundraising event of the year for the group, with proceeds funding BEAR’s educational, legislative and protection initiatives. This year’s art auction features works from talented artists, local shops and selected earth-conscious companies, some exclusively made for this event. Tickets include appetizers, dinner and dessert. A cash bar will feature wine, beer and champagne. RSVP required.
