Grateful for Our Donors

Supported by the generosity of our donors, The Nature Museum continues its vital work through all the seasons. Our staff is active in Grafton and way beyond.  Environmental educators are providing science lessons in local classrooms and leading youth on out-of-doors adventures, like studying tracks on the trail and discovering new habitats. We also welcome families to examine our wonderful dioramas inside The Museum. The Nature Museum’s annual series of talks and walks for adults featuring naturalists and experts throughout New England is helping keep the wonder, scientific study, and stewardship of our natural world alive. 

The Nature Museum is extremely grateful to the individuals, families and businesses whose philanthropy sustains The Nature Museum. Contributions from our strong community are critical to the financial health and sustainability of our mission.  The following names represent the generous philanthropic gifts by Nature Museum donors in 2016, including our Annual Fund.
