Arkansas Audubon Halberg Ecology Camp: I hope you're up for the challenge

I just got home from the second 2007 presentation to Arkansas Audubon Halberg Ecology Camp. What a great group of students they are – as always! However, this particular group touched me in a way I haven't seen before.

After the presentation, rounds of questions, photo opportunities, etc., I was packing up when several students started to line up and hand me dollar bills. I was very pleasantly surprised to say the least. Their total contribution added up to $28! I was so impressed that this group of 11 & 12 year old students was so generous to give up their unsolicited canteen money because they wanted to help our wildlife rehabilitation efforts.

Here's the challenge for those reading this: Help us by matching the students' contribution. You can donate by snail mail (HAWK Center, PO Box 1922, Russellville, AR 72811-1922) or through PayPal on our website ( Your contribution will be extremely helpful for us as we improve our flight conditioning enclosures. Thank you in advance.
