President’s Message: January

President's Message January 2022

As the newly elected president of the Back Bay Wildfowl Guild and Atlantic Wildfowl Heritage Museum, I am looking forward to working with all of you to continue the good work that has already been completed. 

First, I want to thank Jason Seward for guiding us through the pandemic years. We should all be thankful for his tireless efforts. Also, Lynn Hightower, our Director, continues to effectively maintain our day-to-day operations. 

My visions for the future are to increase membership and to create a more robust museum that draws increased attendance and revenue. 

Actions are already underway to make this happen. The foundation is poured for a new gazebo and construction will begin shortly. This will become the centerpiece for hosting outdoor events. Our events coordinator has established a framework for attracting events and we will continue to build on that good work. The Surfrider Foundation recently provided a $5000 donation which we are all most thankful to receive. Partnerships like this are wonderful and we will continue to pursue more. 

I do hope we can have all of our members visit the museum and become more active in what we are doing, and I hope that all of you will help to increase our membership. 

Thank you for your support and I look forward to working with and serving you. 


Phil Davenport
President, Back Bay Wildfowl Guild
And Atlantic Wildfowl Heritage Museum
