Call of the Wild - A Camp-Inspired Celebration to Benefit Oregon Wild

Advance tickets are no longer on sale - but you can still get your tickets at the door. 6:00pm, 101 N Weidler.

Call of the Wild is an event like no other to benefit the work of Oregon Wild, our state’s premier conservation group for over 40 years. This event features casual flannel instead of black ties, campfire circles instead of white tablecloths, and custom local bites galore instead of pre-selected entrees. Guests will enjoy a silent auction, local food and drink, live music, and more. Be part of the celebration by purchasing your advance ticket. We hope you’ll join us!

Check back for details on all the silent auction packages, or follow Call of the Wild 2015 on Facebook to stay tuned as we release more details and auction prizes!

Advance tickets are just $40 (the price goes up to $50 at the door so get yours now!)

A camp-inspired night of festivities, Call of the Wild is a chance to see stunning photography from our 11th annual Outdoor Photo Contest, mingle with wilderness and wildlife lovers from across the state, and celebrate everything you love about Oregon. This year’s benefit will feature:

  • The unveiling of the winning photographs from our 11th annual Outdoor Photo Contest;
  • A silent auction featuring framed prints of the Photo Contest finalists, rafting and adventure trips, outdoor gear and apparel, packages for hikers, photographers, climbers, fishing enthusiasts, kayakers, beer lovers, foodies, and more;
  • Tasty local food, local wine, Brew Dr. Kombucha, and beer from Migration, Hopworks, and Fort George;
  • Wild-crafted cocktails by Merit Badge featuring Thomas & Sons Distillery, RAFT Syrups, and Big Bottom Whiskey;
  • Live music sets by Hip Hatchet and a special event soundtrack of Northwest artists curated by Marmoset Music; and
  • Our very own trail mix bar and photo booth with a special representative of Oregon’s wildlife community.
