Love Is In The Air
It’s now almost the end of January, and love is in the air—at least it is for the owls that are sending their amorous hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo messages out into the night air seeking a mate.
However, owls are not the only species expressing their amorous sentiments. The human species (Homo sapiens) are preparing to celebrate the most romantic day of the year—Valentine’s Day. Some will exchange cards, others will show up at their lady-love’s door with flowers or a box of chocolates, which will either wilt in a few days or be eaten in short order.

The true romantics will show up with a certificate for a World Bird Sanctuary brick! You don’t think that sounds so romantic? Think about it—the flowers will be wilted and dead within a few days; the candy will quickly be long gone; but the inscribed brick will be a lasting testament to your true love. You may choose any sentiment you like (within the constraints of space and taste, of course).
You and your love will be able to find your brick years from now by visiting the World Bird Sanctuary amphitheater on your anniversary—or any time you choose. Your children and grandchildren can make a trip to WBS to find their “family brick” generations from now and reminisce about how their family tree started.
