2 Letter from the Director and Chair Dear BNC Family and Friends, Thank you for celebrating with us ten years of the George Robert White Environmental Conservation Center the City s first green building at Mass Audubon s Boston Nature Center. Transforming the site of the former Boston State Hospital into a unique 67-acre urban greenspace and nature center was then and still is today a vital investment in connecting underserved neighborhoods with nature in the city. Thank you for the role you play in encouraging engagement with the natural world and building and supporting a diverse community of learners. As we look back on the 10th Anniversary year, we have the opportunity to reflect on how the BNC has become a true sanctuary in the heart of the city and how so many individuals in our community and neighborhoods have been part of making that happen. Through the involvement and commitment of countless supporters, donors, and volunteers the BNC has become a vital community resource, a place for outdoor exploration in one of Boston s most densely populated neighborhoods, and a living classroom for tens of thousands of Boston school students. Volunteer involvement and donor support will keep the BNC vibrant for a future generation of learners. Together we will continue the important work of preserving a natural habitat in the midst of the city, providing culturally competent urban environmental education for learners of all ages and abilities, and inspiring all of Boston to connect with and learn from nature and each other. Thank you for all you do and for being part of the BNC s phenomenal past and inspiring future. Left to right: Julie Brandlen, Anne and Peter Brooke Director, with Anne and Peter Brooke and Maria Higgins, BNC s Sanctuary Committee Chair.

3 Boston Schools Environmental Initiative Deepening Connections Tarantula Hawk drawn by a Grade 2 student from the Dennis Haley K-6 Pilot School. Ornate Leaf Beetle drawn by a Grade 2 student from the Dennis Haley K-6 Pilot School. Boston Schools Environmental Initiative (BSEI) remains a hallmark partnership between the BNC and the Boston Public Schools. The program engages students and teachers for a minimum of four years in direct modeling, mentoring and coaching of hands-on/minds-on investigations and inquiry by the BNC naturalist and classroom teacher. The outdoors becomes the classroom for questioning, observing, sketching, journaling and responding with all lessons aligned to city and state standards and curriculum frameworks at each grade level. Six schools have participated in BSEI for as few as four and as many as twelve years (and still counting). Evaluators have confirmed the success of BSEI through the evaluation of journal entries across a wide range of students. Teachers in all partnering schools continue to provide students with a deep appreciation of the outdoors through science and other curriculum areas. Recently, second graders from the Dennis Haley K-6 Pilot School exhibited their work at the BNC and hosted families in a Museum Tour. Boston Nature Center 2013 Annual Report Page 2

4 BNY Mellon YouthLeaders Nurturing Future Leaders The development of neighborhood teens as young leaders and stewards of nature are a focus for the six teens in the BNY Mellon YouthLeaders Program at the BNC. Now in its eleventh year, the teens remain engaged in authentic learning experiences, work opportunities in education, administration and site development, leadership skill development and strict observance of work ethic with personal attention and mentoring. This past year they have taken the responsibility of the development and implementation of monthly Saturday Nature Play Dates. They design the program, each taking a specific responsibility, and implement it whether indoors or outside. The four seniors have also eagerly taken on the responsibility of Teen Counselors at summer camp and have demonstrated leadership, understanding of child development and planning of appropriate programming for their small groups of campers. Pathways to Nature Preschool A Nature-based Preschool In February 2013, after a year of planning and renovating and with licensing from the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care (EEC), the Boston Nature Center opened the first classroom of the Pathways to Nature Preschool. Word soon spread about the engaging programming focused on outdoor learning and exploration and enrollment quickly expanded to 46 children. The preschoolers days are filled with outdoor hikes, playing in the Nature Nook, caring for classroom turtles, fish, worms, and, even Madagascar hissing cockroaches. Most importantly, these young children are involved in hands-on/minds-on inquiry based learning using all of their senses while developing an appreciation for nature. Following BNC s successful camp model, the preschool operates on a sliding scale, providing all families the opportunity to expose young learners to the wonders of nature. Donor support was key to BNC s ability to open the preschool and expand educational programming to neighboring communities, and to provide preschoolers with the opportunity to experience safe, enjoyable, and formative educational experiences. For many of these young children, the Pathways to Nature Preschool offers them a first opportunity to explore the outdoors and to learn to love and value the beauty and diversity of the natural world.

5 During Weird Science Week, campers follow the recipe and prepare a batch of GACK. Adventurers transfer compost to the education garden plots. Birds and Brew guests are dazzled by the screech owl. Summer Day Camp Summer Camp in the City Over 900 happy campers spent their summer days exploring and engaging with nature at the BNC s Summer Day Camp. They became scientists as they participated in a variety of experiments, learned to work as a team with other campers, and were actively engaged outdoors each day under the guidance of highly qualified camp counselors. Campers seemed to be dirtier than ever this year, and families responded very positively to this situation. One parent commented that she was thrilled her child was having the kind of summer she had growing up playing outside with friends, having fun, laughing, and getting dirty. Scholarships remain instrumental to ensuring all campers are able to attend regardless of their ability to pay. Last year we provided $75,162 in campership support with 30% of families paying $50 or less per week to attend. Family feedback consistently includes comments like We re so fortunate to have BNC camp. It s really an urban oasis and a great way to learn about the natural environment right in their backyard. However, the children running into camp in the morning and their hesitancy to leave at the end of the day are the real proof of a successful camp. Donors and Volunteers make all the difference Boston Nature Center is grateful to the many donors who make our access for all mission a reality for neighbors and community members. On November 9, 2012, Birds and Brew welcomed nearly 200 friends to visit up close with raptors from Blue Hills Trailside Museum, enjoyed selections from local breweries, and most importantly, supported BNC s educational programs. Spring Swing, held on May 4, 2013, was especially festive with new silent auction items including birdhouses painted by local artists and community leaders. The event raised over $30,000 a 30% increase over the prior year meaning even more students have the opportunity to experience environmental education programs. It is only through the hard work of hundreds of volunteers that BNC is able to beautify, maintain, and restore the sanctuary grounds and trails. During the past year, volunteers from many corporations and organizations have made a difference including Blue Cross Blue Shield, Boston Cares, Boston University Students, Goodwin Proctor, Whole Foods - Jamaica Plain, Work Inc. among many others.

12 Volunteer Spotlight The Boston Nature Center is extremely grateful to all current and past members of BNC s Sanctuary Committee. These committed, creative, loyal volunteers have been instrumental in making the BNC the vibrant and vital community resource it is today. Many committee members have been involved since the creation of the BNC. They also serve on various subcommittees central to the BNC s operations including Education, Environment, and Planning and Development. The volunteer support from these outstanding individuals has impacted so many areas of the BNC including fundraising, marketing, strategic planning, curriculum development, and sanctuary maintenance. These extraordinary individuals are dedicated to connecting people with nature and their ongoing support deepens and enriches the BNC s impact on the surrounding community. They are the heart of the BNC and for that we are deeply appreciative.
