Tampa Prep's Whooping-good Day!
January 25, 2008

Thank you, Ms. Trubelhorn!

Students from Tampa Prep were the first school group ever to attend an arrival flyover. Even thought the weather prevented the cranes from flying, the kids were cheered by the day's events. Here's their teacher's report: "The students were able to meet the pilots, scientists, and the founders of Operation Migration. We then viewed and sat in a Cessna, which is the top cover plane during the migration. The hosts of the Flyover showed our students a fantastic film and answered many, many more questions about the migration and the cranes.  Finally, one of the hosts planned for a free visit to the Homosassa Springs Park/Zoo, where two captive Whooping Cranes live. We finished the day with visiting the Homosassa Springs Park to see the two Whooping Cranes and celebrate their Hippo's 48th birthday!!
