Allan Graduates!!!
Masters in Engineering from CU!!!

Great Accomplishment!!!

Just last week we went to Colorado for my eldest son's graduation from Colorado University at Boulder. He now has his Masters in Environmental Engineering. He received his Bachelors in Chemical Engineering from USF where he was the President of Engineers Without Borders.

He has always had an interest in providing sanitary drinking water to those in other countries who have none. His most recent trip took him to Africa for a few months! He had quite the experience!

Congratulations, Allan!!!

Eagle Release - Back to the Wild

My Son Matthew, Birds of Prey!!!

This is a picute of my son,Matthew, who is the Coordinator for Eagle Watch in Florida!



Audubon’s Center for Birds of Prey opened its doors in 1979. Thirty one years later, the Center is the premier raptor rehabilitation facility in the eastern United States. Raptors treated at the Center include hawks, owls, kites, falcons and eagles. In addition to birds of prey, it also cares for vultures, taking every opportunity to educate the public about these very valuable members of the stork family.


DSC_1925  2

Annual patient admissions average 600, with a release rate of 40%. Approximately 10% of admissions annually are Bald Eagles, and the Center is renowned for its eagle care. To date the Center has released 407 eagles back to the wild.





Non-releasable birds may live out their lives at the Center as education ambassadors. Young birds with permanent disabilities are trained to the glove and become “working birds”, traveling to schools, festivals and other events. They interact with over 20,000 people annually.





The Center is located in a suburban neighborhood on Lake Sybelia in Maitland. In addition to over 20 species of raptors and vultures on display, there are educational displays, a butterfly garden, gazebo and wetlands on the lake and Audubon House, a restored 1924 bungalow.
