As you step onto the landing on the second floor of the Ravalli County Museum, you see the trees. And they can be yours.

The Ravalli County Museum Gallery of Trees extended the silent bid deadline until the afternoon Saturday, November 30. The trees have been specially decorated by valley artists and businesses. If you win the bid, the tree can go with you, or you can donate it to a local non-profit organization.

You have until 1 p.m. November 30 to make your bid.

The museum will be open Friday, November 29, and Saturday. By the way, the new Natural History exhibit deserves a little of your time. There are interactive portions for the whole family and it will be changing throughout its display time.
