Friends of a Feather 2019 celebrates these recipients:

Art Inspiring Conservation Award - Grainger McKoy
Mr. McKoy is known for bringing the natural world to life in stunning, realistic sculpture. A student of the natural world, McKoy’s three-dimensional rendering of birds mirrors Audubon’s commitment to work “drawn from nature.” Two McKoy sculptures will be on exhibit in the new museum. Legacy Award - Edith R. Dixon
Mrs. Dixon has generously supported the work of Audubon PA for many years, and is a leader in support for the new John James Audubon Center. Her support has included the museum as well as the Fledgling Field, which offers opportunities for learning in nature for children of all abilities.
