NEWS AND UPCOMING EVENTS

Our president is retiring.  Sandy Madden has served Ridge Audubon well for the past ten years, and we are grateful for all she has done.  As proof of that, it takes two to replace her!  Jacque Woodward and Valerie Kiracofe have agreed to be co-presidents for the foreseeable future.  

On March 29, Ridge Audubon hosted 80 third graders from nearby Babson Park Elementary to learn about butterflies.  Audubon member Elaine Berner, a butterfly educator, presented the program to the students, who were accompanied by 20 parents and teachers.
