A touching and important story appeared in the Los Angeles Times today. Worth your time to read.
Los Angeles Times Story about owl and classroom
It is also an important reminder how connected we are with nature, or can be when we have the opportunity to fall in love with nature and the Earth. Kids just love animals. We are so touched to read at the end how the owl makes that young boy, who has so many difficulties in his life, “very happy”. We are committed to keeping those animals that make him so happy part of our world.
We have our own local and very threatened Burrowing Owl populations that the Wildlife and Habitat Conservation Coalition will be working very hard to protect in 2017. Escondido Neighbors United is a member of the coalition and we would love any help and support anyone would like to offer. (Just a reminder that you can offer a tax-deductible donation here. Info for joining ENU )
We will share soon about our activities for 2017 but wanted to be sure everyone had a chance to enjoy this story.
Happy New Year!
From all of us at Escondido Neighbors United
