Hi All,
Piggy-backing on Colleen's message about the Cayuga Bird Club meeting on
*Read below about an opportunity to donate binoculars.*

First, I promise that the talk will be fun and interesting even though it
is based on real social science data.

Second, if you have a pair of binoculars sitting around your house in good
working order, but otherwise not being used much, please consider donating
them to our cause.  We've had high school students working here in Ithaca
on our habitat restoration project, and we are going to be connecting them
to students in Honduras working on conservation projects there.  These
projects benefit the exact same bird species at different times and places
in their annual life cycle.  In January, MPS student Mary McKean, who is
working on the project with us, will be traveling to Honduras to meet with
Bird Clubs and some school kids with whom they work.  She is willing to
deliver any binoculars we donate for the kids in Honduras to use.  She will
gladly collect any binoculars you want to donate Monday night.

See you Monday!
Jody Enck
