with nature and wildlife is, for me, synonymous with summertime. Since
Canadian geese and other migratory waterfowl frequent our local waterways
during the summer months so it’s the perfect time to develop in our young an appreciation and respect
for our natural world through first hand experience. This delightful
boy’s spontaneous gesture to share his food is an international and
species wide gesture signifying safety and a desire to interact and care
for these remarkable creatures. "
