Woodcock Nature Center has received a $4,000 grant from Fairfield County Bank to support its general operations. The bank has been supporting the Nature Center since 2017.
“We are thrilled by Fairfield County Bank’s belief in our work,” commented Executive Director Lenore Eggleston Herbst. “The Bank and its management continue to set an example for stewardship in our community, and we are grateful for their support.”
Located on 149 acres of state-protected land, Woodcock Nature Center includes a pond, wetlands and 3 miles of publicly accessible woodland trails. The Center is home to a variety of living local and exotic creatures including snakes, frogs, lizards and a handful of injured birds of prey. A non-profit organization since 1972, Woodcock is proud to serve as a resource for educating the community about our natural surroundings through public outreach, school field trips and visits, on-site birthday parties and an extremely popular summer camp.
“At Fairfield County Bank we are deeply committed to supporting local organizations which provide enriching educational opportunities to our community. We are proud to have an ongoing partnership with Woodcock Nature Center,” noted Fairfield County Bank Vice President Doreen McManus.
