Share Your Love of Nature
Annual Appeal 2019
In this season of love, we thank you for showing your love of nature and your community. You make Briar Bush what it is today. Your donations preserve the magic of Everett and Florence Griscom’s 12-acre woodland and keep their century-old legacy of conservation alive. Your generosity helps provide captivating experiences for thousands of people each year, keeping our educators busy on the trails, in schools, at senior centers and all sorts of community spaces.
Because of you, our work has led people toward deep and everlasting connections with nature. For example, take this thank you note from a recent volunteer, Dmitriy, to Mark Fallon, our Senior Naturalist:
“As a person who had little care for his surroundings, I can say that Briar Bush was responsible for my newly discovered interest in birds… and nature as a whole. I believe that, to this day, the most fun I have ever had volunteering was being a camp aide with you, Katie, Melissa and Ehren. My experience at Hog Island Audubon Camp, which was only made possible through Briar Bush, was one of the BEST experiences in my life… I wanted to say thanks to you and all of Briar Bush for helping me learn and grow as a person…Briar Bush has been a massive part of my life and I would not be where I am without it."
Through your contributions, we can continue to inspire more people like Dmitriy. You can help us open new eyes to the wonders of nature.
Our message to you is simple: Please share your love of nature through a gift that will keep these wonderful encounters going. Your Annual Appeal donation will directly fund educators, supplies for animals and programs, and need-based scholarships. You can help create an experience for a child that will last a lifetime.
We hope we can count on you to help. Please consider making a gift to the Annual Appeal today. Remember, this is a gift above and beyond your membership, and it is much appreciated. Please call us if you have any questions.
P.S. Please stop by and fill out a card to share what you love about Briar Bush! We’ll post it on our bulletin board at the Nature Center. If you’ve already given, thank you! If not, please enclose your gift with your note or donate now online.
