On behalf of the students of the Buffalo Public Schools, I wish to convey a sincere thank you for the excellent programs you presented at the Waterfront School and Olmsted School #56. Your presentation on the Biology and Ecology of Birds of Prey and your demonstrations with “Mingo” the red-tailed hawk, provided an informative and captivating experience for our youngsters. Your message of respect for nature and the need for conservation and protection of the environment was clear and understood by all. Your work is what Science Education is all about. When we get to know Mingo and what he stands for, we have expanded the walls of the classroom and built positive attitudes and appreciation for all living things.
