The Massachusetts Audubon Society’s original founders in 1896 set out to stop the slaughter of birds for use in women’s fashions. Fast forward to today; Mass Audubon is the largest conservation organization in New England, and because of its founders’ efforts, many a happy bird in Massachusetts continues to puff out its little chest and sing its delightful songs.
I suspect the founders would be delighted to know that tonight at the Mass Audubons Moose Hill Wildlife Gallery is an artist reception for the exhibit Spontaneous Synergy: Texture, Light and Color, featuring the art work of Sheila Pallay, Amanda Galvin-Johnston and Diane Chester-Demicco. The reception is from 6-8pm. The show runs through August 10, 2009. Moose Hill Sanctuary is located at 293 Moose Hill Street in Sharon, MA. For more information, call 781-784-5691.
Bonus points: guess the official state bird and you get an imaginary feather in your cap.
