Hesthavn in Chat

Spring at last! I hope you were able to visit Hesthavn for the “April Artist Appreciation Reception” for Katie Johnson. It was a beautiful day, with 75 people in attendance. Our next special Saturday will be May 5th’s “May Madness Wildflower Weekend.” The Open House hours will be from 9:00a-1:00p. There will be a tour of Hesthavn at 10:00a, with an emphasis on the wildflowers blooming in our flowerbeds and in locations throughout Hesthavn. Additionally, we are also offering a tour of Hesthavn on May 12th, at 10:00a. Our bridge fund efforts have been successful enough to be able to install the footbridges this summer, rather than next year, as we had originally planned. We still need your help to cover the labor costs. If you would like to help us complete this project, please send your tax-deductible donations to the ASC, PO Box 148, Corvallis, OR 97339. I am hoping for a ribbon-cutting event in September. A reminder, that our next Habitat Restoration Project work party will be on May 19th from 9-12. Volunteers are always needed. If you would like to join us, you may stop by Hesthavn for any amount of time you may have to help. There is always something to do. For more information about volunteering, please contact

For those of you who have submitted donations to the Hesthavn Bridge Fund, we thank you for your support. We have only a couple more weeks before our deadline for the matching funds is here and we’re not quite there yet. We currently have $4,470 towards the $5,000 matching funds we are trying to meet. If you would like to contribute towards this project, please send your tax-deductible donations to the Audubon Society of Corvallis, PO Box 148, Corvallis, OR 97339 Thank you.
