Welcome to Fenner Nature Center!

A special message from the Board of Directors at Fenner Conservancy....

It is with profound thanks and bittersweet congratulations that we announce the transition of our faithful and talented Executive Director, Jason Meyer. 

Jason has accepted an incredible opportunity with our friends at Blandford Nature Center as President and CEO. 

The Fenner family will miss Jason terribly, but are excited for new beginnings here at Fenner. The Board is already at work to ensure continuity in leadership during the transition. We'll be sending Jason off in style at a going away party in the coming weeks - stay tuned to the website or facebook for details!

Join us in congratulating Jason and thanking him for his service to Fenner and dedication to environmental education.
