The Gallery of Trees is welcoming visitors to the second floor of the Ravalli County Museum. And you can own one of them with the right bid!

The museum has a dozen artificial trees- decorated by local businesses and organizations. The silent auction started Friday November 15 and wraps up Friday, November 22. The highest bids on each of the trees will win.

At that point, the winner of each tree will have the option of keeping the tree or donating it to a deserving non-profit organization.

The Gallery of Trees auction is a fundraiser for the Ravalli County Museum, which has opened a new exhibit showcasing the natural world around us.

The trees were sponsored and decorated by:

  • The Brooks Christmas and Gift Shop
  • Donna's Antiques
  • Rainbow Bar
  • Cardinal Properties
  • Grooming by Denise
  • Dog Face Dog Treats
  • Acquired Taste
  • Bitterroot RC&D
  • Lakeland Feed and Supply
  • Cornerstone Realty
  • Pigman Builders
  • Trapper Creek Job Corps
  • The tree themes are everything from pets to "Wow!"
