Dedication of Founders Wing

On Sunday November 16th the Boxerwood Education Association dedicated it newly renovated and repurposed Founders Wing at the Munger Lodge.  This project allows Boxerwood to have additional inclement weather classroom and meeting space allowing flexibility in scheduling of activities a the Nature Center.  All of this was made possible through the donation of time and skills by volunteers who not only remodeled the interior of the building, but had to do structural work on the exterior to support the 50 year old roof.
