MODs, who "met" in 2010 watching the barn owls Molly & McGee, are now part of a worldwide charitable organization dedicated to nature and wildlife education, conservation and art. The MM17 will bring together MODs from across the country, both in-person and virtually, as we spend a weekend supporting the legacy of Molly and McGee.
