Greeted first by the resident goats, chickens and turkey, I immediately asked permission if I could take pictures. And though I have only a few for you here, it was a volunteer event that I will always cherish, thanks to the hospitality of Horizon Wings.

I will tell you that working around the aviaries of these birds, one develops a whole new perspective. They all have personalities of their own, which became more and more apparent being close to them.
An aviary is an enclosure used for confining birds. They are not cages. An aviary allows birds a much larger living space, where they can fly. Sometimes they are called "flight cages" and often contain plants to stimulate a natural environment.

Volunteering as a representative of The Last Green Valley, I knew that this event would be interesting to say the least. And it was. Working along side of many other volunteers to help "clean-up" the grounds to prepare for their big event to be held Earth Day, April 22nd, we raked leaves, picked up sticks, and dragged tarps filled with debris off into the nearby woods.
However, even though we did yard-work, both the work and time flew by (pardon the pun).
