LITCHFIELD — White Memorial Conservation Center will celebrate the 141st birthday of Alain White (March 3, 1880), with an online auction that includes an abundance of treasures from new to lightly used to antique to wonderful services.

Those participating can find a trifle or make a donation. Bidding begins at 9 a.m. on March 1 and ends at 9 p.m. on March 14.

Bidders can sponsor a child to go to summer camp or bid on a Meet and Greet with Shakespeare the Barred Owl and a personal Owl Prowl with Fran Zygmont followed by breakfast at Patty’s.

Also offered is a summer Champagne, Nibbles, and Bat Count with Gerri Griswold, a Bird Walk and Ice Cream Treat with Carrie Szwed, a Picnic and Music with Ian Campbell atop Apple Hill, or Paddle the Bantam River in a four person Old Town canoe.

Proceeds from the auction will help defray The Conservation Center’s operating expenses. The goal is $10,000. WMCC’s income resources have been gravely affected by Covid-19.

Log onto for more information.

Those who wish to donate an item may email Gerri Griswold at
