The generosity of others to my birding program never ceases to amaze me! Today a friend who chatted with Mr. Terry of Vortex, received a box in the mail for our classroom. It contained six pair of brand new 8x28 Vortex binoculars! Now I have enough binoculars for all of the students to use when we go birding and for older kids to use when we go birding.
What a gift for us! Binoculars bring the world of nature
in closer and make it even more magnificent! Thank you to Vortex,
Shamus Terry, and Lea for contacting them. Vortex and Fairway Seeds had
each donated the same type of binoculars last week, so this was a huge
surprise! Last spring generous birders donated their used field guides
and two donors set me up with 40 birding field guides to distribute to
the kindergarten - 4th grade Chickadee bird club members, so that they would all
have a guides of their very own. Wow! All I can say is...WOW!
