Greg,

Thank you for your public thank you to ASM for the support of the Glade program via the CACHE/SPARKS funds.

It is really special for ASM to be able to contribute to conservation efforts in Missouri, particularly so with the GLADE program.  In this way, we are all participating in habitat improvement now and investing in youth, preparing for their future and the future of Missouri's natural heritage.

And, thank you, on behalf of all Missourians for the work you have done with the GLADE program.

We are very proud of our collaborative efforts with Missouri State to bring highly impactful conservation education to the young people of the Ozarks!   One day we hope that through the youths' efforts, we will once again witness Swainson's Warbler nesting in the area.

Our ass't director and federally licensed bander Andrew Kinslow and his apprentice Dr. Janice Greene banded Kentucky Warbler, Black and White Warbler, Summer Tanager, Carolina Wren, a family of Cardinals, and an awesome Eastern Screech Owl, contributing all information to the Institute of Bird Populations.    All of our students were able to handle at least one of the birds.  The experience changed many of their lives.
