Therapy Day At the Southwest Wildlife Foundation of Utah

The therapy day we participated in this month was a little different than the others. There is a man in Cedar City who is a  Master Falconer and Educator and has over 46 years experience working with animals, especially birds. His name is Martin Tyner. He gave us a great presentation on his Golden Eagle, Scout, and his hawk. The youth have been reading his book, "Healer of Angels" that is about his life. Many of the youth can relate to him as he struggled with a learning disorder and other trials in his life. He worked hard to become a Master Falconer and to have the Southwest Wildlife Foundation of Utah. He was inspirational to many youth. 
We were also able to have a picnic at a local park where the youth were able to relax and enjoy being outside.
