Friends of Audubon Named Grant Finalist

The Friends of Audubon have been named one of five grant finalists for the Impact 100 Owensboro 2014 grant cycle. The group will award 2 grants of $100,000 to two lucky finalists.

The Friends of Audubon's proposal is to repair several existing trails in the nature preserve of John James Audubon State Park as well as replace several of the bridges. The majority of the $100,000 will go toward building a second boardwalk on the Audubon Wetlands that will be accessible to those with limited mobility. Once accomplished, the Audubon Wetlands trail system and boardwalks will be one of the only places in the Midwest for those with limited mobility to hike.

We are very honored and excited to be named a finalist. We are looking forward to the final presentation in October 2014.
