Auction items include local art, spa and resort packages, river rafting trips, fishing trips, guided climbs and many other items and experiences.

Major event sponsors Excavator Rental Services and Skamania Chamber of Commerce are excited to announce Gary Loomis, founder of Fish First and renowned fishing expert, will be the keynote speaker.
Due to ranger district consolidation, the Pine Creek Information Station was closed in 2006. It reopened in May 2009 with a group of ten area organizations joining forces with the Forest Service to staff, operate and maintain the facility. The Pine Creek Information Station, which serves as both a community focal point and an emergency services center for residents and visitors to the southeastern area of Mount St. Helens, is located 18 miles east of Cougar and 40 miles north of Stevenson, WA, on the north end of Swift Reservoir.
Organizations involved in this collaborative effort are the Forest Service, Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument, Mount St. Helens Institute, Discover Your Northwest, Swift Community Action Team, Cougar Area Trail Seekers, Skamania County, Skamania County Sheriff's Office, Skamania County Fire District 6, North County EMS and the Skamania County Chamber of Commerce.
