SPRING SWING FUNDRAISER ON SUNDAY, JUNE 1 AT MASS AUDUBON’S BOSTON NATURE CENTER

Proceeds support scholarship fund for children from low-income families MATTAPAN, MA— Join Mass Audubon’s Boston Nature Center (BNC) on Sunday, June 1, from 3:00-6:00pm to honor Ginger Lawrence, dedicated friend of the BNC, for a springtime afternoon of Brazilian music, auctions, fine food, beer, wine, and other beverages. All proceeds support BNC’s scholarship fund that provides children the opportunity to attend environmental education programs and summer camp at BNC.

The silent auction will feature one-of-a-kind birdhouses and garden art created by area artists. All art pieces will be part of a juried art show on May 17. Jury members include Brian Crete, Owner/Gallery Director of the UFORGE Gallery; Jonathan Fairbanks, Director of the Fuller Craft Museum; Abigail Norman, Executive Director of The Eliot School.

The Boston Nature Center (BNC) is one of Mass Audubon’s 53 statewide wildlife sanctuaries. Located in one of the most densely populated neighborhoods of the city, the BNC provides access to the wonders of the natural world to city residents. Through partnerships with area schools and camp programs, BNC’s environmental education work touches the lives of thousands of children and their families each year. Given the diverse economic status of the families served, the BNC is committed to providing environmental educations programs for free or at very low cost. Because many families cannot afford to send their children to summer camp or to pay for other programs, a scholarship fund is maintained for this purpose.

For more information, call 617-983-8500 or email bnc@massaudubon.org. The Boston Nature Center is located at 500 Walk Hill Street in Mattapan, Massachusetts.

Together with more than 100,000 members, we care for 35,000 acres of conservation land, provide school, camp, and other educational programs for 225,000 children and adults annually, and advocate for sound environmental policies at local, state, and federal levels. Founded in 1896 by two inspirational women who were committed to the protection of birds, Mass Audubon has grown to become a powerful force for conservation in New England. Today we are respected for our sound science, successful advocacy, and innovative approaches to connecting people and nature. Each year, our statewide network of wildlife sanctuaries welcomes nearly half a million visitors of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds and serves as the base for our work.
