Dear Mike,

I would like to thank you for the use of your photos in Audubon Canyon Ranch's Education Program. We are using the photos in the slideshows that docents take into the classrooms before the students come out to our preserves. It is so much more effective when talking about the role turkey vultures play in the ecology of a place to be able to show a photograph of a turkey vulture cleaning a carcass.

Audubon Canyon Ranch's Education Program connects adults and children with our local landscapes, opening them to the wonder, excitement, and mystery of the natural world. This connection inspires a desire to protect, to pass on what they learn to others, to become more ecologically literate, and to act with foreknowledge and care in their personal lives and communities. ACR's school programs work with 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders in San Francisco, Marin, Alameda, Contra Costa, and Sonoma Counties. We serve nearly 7,000 school children a year in 150 schools.

So there are a lot of kids that get to see your photos.
