To Our 2016 Donors: Thank You!!

As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, The Nature Museum depends on the generous support of our larger community. We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who gave to us in 2016, whether through our Annual Fund Drive or in the lead up to our largest community event, The Fairy House Festival.

Their generosity enabled us to purchase new books for our Mighty Acorn pre-school age programs; hands-on items about bats used during our environmental education lessons and new displays for our rotating exhibits. These funds are critical to the financial health and sustainability of our organization.

As environmental educators, we make a difference every day in Grafton and far beyond. Last year we hosted Grafton Elementary School’s 1st and 2nd grades for our Fort Building Program and we received the following feedback from one of the visiting teachers: 

Not only did the students learn a lot about engineering and working as a team, but they also had a great time out in the woods. It is hard to get them to work on a math problem together but look at them now. This program addresses Next Generation Science Standards for Engineering in a really fun way and keeps our students thinking!

The big-heartedness of our donors builds a stronger conservation and stewardship community by supporting the diverse outreach initiatives of The Nature Museum.  

February brings another jam-packed month. Our 2017 season of public walks and talks for adults, youth and families feature experts naturalists from throughout New England.

In conference rooms, in classrooms, and in the field, The Nature Museum is helping keep the wonder, scientific study, and stewardship of our natural world alive.

Again, many thanks for your support.  It means the world to us and to all of the people who experience our programing.  I hope we will see each other at more of the Museum’s fun and informative camps, workshops or public events.
