• Bingham Cyclery is donating a Specialized Fuse Expert 6Fattie.  It’s a mountain bike with a retail value of $2100.  In a nutshell:  27.5 wheels with fat tires, front suspension and hard tail. Great on trails! Light, responsive and fantastic traction. Details on the website:

• Oooh. A very special dinner for 12 will be prepared by amazing friends of the Nature Center. Each a gourmet cook in their own right... Sally Neill, Kathy Peterson, Di Allison, Mary Hall, Yae Bryner, Sandy Crosland, and Sharon Holmstrom will join talents to provide an evening you’ll treasure forever for you and your friends. This dinner 
may not be offered again after this year, so this may be your only chance.  These women were instrumental in the development of the Nature Center, and have been good friends of the Nature Center for 41 years.  
 
• Two charming original wood cut prints by Harry Taylor will be offered! Harry passed away in 2003, and his prints are getting hard to find. Harry was a printmaker known for bold design, simplicity, and clarity combined with woodcut, etching, and photo processes. He lived in Ogden, taught at WSU, and earned his BFA and MFA from the Art Institute of Chicago where he studied under Boris Ainisfeld and Moishe Smith. Influences from Australia, New Zealand, and Africa are shown in Taylor’s work. 
 
• Black Majic Skis by Scott!  Great for all conditions.  These award-winning skis in size 177 deliver ultimate performance with an elliptic titanal sandwich construction and exceptional torsional stiffness. The combination of Scott’s unique 3Dimension Sidecut and a full ski-length wood core guarantees unmatched precision and versatility. 
 
• Need to replace your old yucky backpack before you hike up Ben Lomond this fall? We have a couple from Osprey to choose from - and they are really comfy in fun bright colors.
 
• An original 24” x 36” acrylic on board painting by Michal Luch Onyon.  This is a stunning piece in vibrant, southwest colors. If you have been attending the BASH for years, and it holds a special place in your heart, this painting will speak to you!
