This past fall my wife and I had the distinct pleasure of taking a trip out to Georgia to visit with family and make a little film about their unique bird egg museum, The Avian Learning Center. Through the learning center, three generations of the Blevins family volunteer in their spare time to raise ecological awareness amongst local children through exposure to the wonder and beauty of bird biology.
'The C. E. Blevins Avian Learning Center's mission is to provide an educational experience based on the biology of wild birds. Making use of C. E. Blevins's collection of bird egg replicas, we will tailor our avian biology lessons to both the elementary and adult student. With the addition of outdoor interpretive areas, we hope to become a unique and enlightening resource regarding migratory birds.'
