Sharon Audubon Center Awarded Grant to Create Conservation Programming:
Funds from the grant award will also go towards a sculpture project that will be overseen by metalworker Israel Fitch from: Battle Hill Forge located in Millerton, NY—an exciting project that will involve a group of home-school students who will work with the artist to fabricate and install a butterfly-shaped bench in the new center garden—forging a connection with the home-school community.
The work of the students and project will culminate at the Butterfly Festival for the new Sharon Audubon Center Butterfly House and Garden, which will take place September 2019.
