Nature's Ed. is near and dear to my heart. I have watched the program grow from an idea to the wonderful program it is now. The birds are so well cared for and recieve top notch treatment at all times. The presentations are specifically designed for each program audiences. Being a teacher, I enjoy not only the look of wonder on the children's faces, but the way each and every presentation is delivered in an appropriate way for the classes. I wish Nature's Ed could visit every class in the Nation to share with children. Seeing Birds of Prey up close and personal is a memory that children will keep forever. Nature's Ed. explains the importance of these birds in a fun and interactive way so children leave knowing so much about these birds. It has been so much fun over the years to hear children see Devin in other settings and say with pride in their voices, "I know you! You are the bird girl!" That says impact to me! Thank you Nature's Ed for sharing and making memories for children!!!

Cheating at a public contest open to many charities by voting and creating multiple email addresses in order to win money. They got kicked out for cheating, speaks for itself. I will no longer be supporting them.

I took my parents to an educational event at the Royal Gorge Bridge. Nature’s Educators told the story of 5 different raptors and the importance of their role in nature. Fascinating!

I have followed Natures Educatiors for about 3 years now. I have been to events and programs featuring different ones of their birds and other varmits. They are truly an amazing group. Their facilities are incredible and well appointed for the residents. The volunteers are so committed and concerned about the well being and care of the residents and obviously have a great understanding and love for these different species. I try to help out by donation whenever I can and only wish I could do more! They truly deserve all the accolades that come their way!

As a young child I fell in love with raptors. I wasn’t more than 8 or 9 years old when I began to notice these creatures in the wild. So graceful, so perfect, so beautiful. I wanted one for my own.

After sharing my desire with a teacher, she showed me a book called “My Side of the Mountain”, by Jean Craighead George. In this book the main character escapes a horrible home life to live in nature. There he befriends a peregrine falcon that helps him survive. This book was the trigger that introduced me to nature and made me think about what nature truly is and what my relationship could and should be with it.

The programs provided by Nature’s Educators are often a young child’s first introduction to the natural world. As a volunteer there I see it their faces time and again. We want people of all ages to understand the importance of respecting and protecting wild animals and wild places everywhere. If we educate the public by bringing wild animals to them, we can help them understand and foster compassion for the wildlife they encounter.

Nature’s Educators helps me to share the insight and the love of our natural world that I received many, many years ago.

I have been a volunteer with this organization for 3 years now, and I absolutely love it! The animals are of course amazing. They are cared for very well, and the amount of training and love that the animals receive is unparalleled. The director Devin has created an organization full of passionate people who are eager to learn and share that knowledge with others. I love seeing the impact that the organization makes as well!
