About Our Auction
On Friday, September 29, 2023, the Friends of Briar Bush will return to the Abington Art Center to host our 33rd Feather Our Nest Gala (FON), A Night for All Seasons. Friends, old and new, will experience the whimsy and wonder of the seasons with culinary delights, signature drinks, a wide variety of auction items offered during our online and in-person auctions, and more!
The Feather Our Nest Online Auction will precede the live event. Community members are invited to participate and have the opportunity to win a variety of items. All funds raised from the FON auction directly support the 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, Friends of Briar Bush (Federal Tax I.D. 23-7275154), and our mission to inspire people of all ages and backgrounds to celebrate nature.
About Briar Bush Nature Center
Since 1974, the Friends of Briar Bush has been inspiring people to celebrate nature by welcoming everyone into our museum, bird observatory, pond, and trails.
The past year has been an exciting time at Briar Bush. Funding from supporters like you has enabled us to offer an increased number of affordable programs for groups and families alike. This year’s highlights are:
- The FOBB’s Scholarship Fund’s success allowed us to provide over 80 classroom programs and 11 weeks of camp for families and children in need.
- Family Nature Night, a program for children with sensory processing disorders, now features Forest Therapy Sessions and a certified Occupational Therapist on-site to support staff and families.
- We continued to host two annual festivals and began monthly Weekend Walks. Both are FREE for the community in an effort to encourage families to spend more time out in nature.
