Friends of Tamarac help educate 3,000 area kids

On behalf of the Friends of Tamarac, please accept our heartfelt thanks for your coverage of the Discovery Center at the Tamarac National Wildlife Center. It was perfectly timed with launching our public campaign for funding this effort.

We currently provide 3,000 grade school kids with a state approved curriculum on environmental education. Most of these kids come out three times a year to include seasonal dependent events. With the Discovery Center we will be able to address the backlog of schools that want to participate.

Not only was your article very well done and helpful to our campaign, it reminds all of the Friends that their volunteer hours are of benefit to the community.

Once again, thank you! — Don Blanding, president, Friends of Tamarac
