Greetings from our President
I am please to share with you two recognitions that honor the Wyncote Audubon Society. The first is the notification from the Tookany/Tacony-Frankford Watershed Partnership that Wyncote Audubon has been selected to receive the TTF Legacy Award
in recognition of our environmental leadership in the TTF Watershed.
Many thanks to all of you who have contributed to this recognition. This includes each of you who have led bird walks in Tacony Creek Park, participated in Keith Russell’s Philadelphia Bird Count, added the Tacony Creek Park to our CBC effort, worked as a “Stream Keeper” to monitor water quality in the watershed, worked to create/maintain the riparian buffers/back yard bird habitat in the watershed, participated in teacher workshops, and worked with students in STEM nights or our ongoing programs in our Audubon Adventure Schools in the watershed.
Please hold 5:30 to 7:30 PM on Wednesday, May 25, 2016 on your schedules to participate in the ceremony scheduled for the Globe Dye Works, 4500 Worth Street in Philadelphia.
I am also pleased to announce that BB&T Bank has selected the Crosswicks Sanctuary as a “Lighthouse Project” for participation by their employees in selected BB&T branches in the area. They will schedule two full “workdays” at the Sanctuary in dates to be selected in May. They expect up to 20 workers to contribute 8 hours of time each to the workdays. They will also budget $1,000 for any items/supplies we designate for them to procure for the project. I will inform you of the dates for the workdays once selected. I will also want to recruit any of you who are interested and available to help by being present for a “shift” to help supervise the BB&T Volunteers.
President of Wyncote Audubon Society
