Thankful for you: Thank you to Mathew McDowell!
We’re thankful for you!
Today (December 5) is International Volunteer Day!
Volunteers are the lifeblood of Bedford Audubon. With such a small Staff, we rely on volunteers to help us with projects big and small. We wouldn’t be nearly as successful without them! Volunteers bring energy, joy, and hope to the mission.
We’re highlighting some of our Volunteers during this season of thanks and giving to show our appreciation for them.
Thank you, Mathew McDowell!
A Shrub Oak native with a keen interest in local ecosystems, Mathew is so pleased to help us in our efforts to protect habitats for native birds and other wildlife. He particularly appreciates learning more about native plants as a volunteer in the Leon Levy Native Garden, and looks forward to taking inspiration from it in his own gardens to help bolster these communities at home.
Mathew is also a volunteer Trail Steward at the Hunt-Parker Sanctuary.
What’s Mathew’s favorite bird? The Pileated Woodpecker, for their delightful combination of stately and silly.
