Thank you to all who attended or supported 2022 Friends of a Feather ... Reimagined
Celebrating the McLean Family and Todd Pride for their contributions to conservation efforts in the Mid-Atlantic region
Friends of a Feather…reimagined was all that we had hoped for after a two-year delay! A glorious spring evening and gorgeous Mill Grove grounds set the stage for guests to gather on the front porch of the John James Audubon Center to mingle, enjoy exceptional food and drink, honor the McLean Family and Todd Pride, and raise funds to support Audubon Mid-Atlantic. Sincere thanks to all who made this a night to remember.

Legacy Award - The McLean Family
Anchored by Elizabeth and William L. McLean III (1927-2011), the McLean family has had a tremendous impact on the landscape and people of the Philadelphia region through The McLean Contributionship, which includes initiatives that celebrate and preserve nature. Since 1994, The Contributionship has invested in Audubon Pennsylvania's work. The most recent joint project, which reflects the family's commitment to the environment and animals, has been a new home for the John James Audubon Center's live Bird Ambassadors.
Conservation Achievement Award - Todd Pride
Since 2008, Todd's passion has been to introduce traditional outdoor recreation such as fishing, hunting, agriculture, and hands-on conservation to communities of color and introduce diversity and diverse communities to conservation organizations and the environmental sector. In 2020, Todd created Legacy Land and Water Partners, which works to preserve open spaces and places - including culturally significant environments such as land associated with the Underground Railroad - to advance his mission of connecting new audiences to outdoor activities. Through Mid-Atlantic Youth Anglers & Outdoor Partners, Todd has introduced more than 15,000 youth to fishing, hunting, and birding.
