At the 7th ANNUAL COOL KIDS! ECOFEST held Saturday, April 14, 2012 at Genesee Community College representing BBBO, Pat Lovallo operated a display table and interacted with attendees to bring awareness of our organization and the work we do.   The ECOFEST is a very big and well attended nature festival and it is the second time BBBO has participated in it.

On April 21 and 22 of 2012 she also manned and presented our traveling education displays at the Braddock Bay Raptor Research BIRD OF PREY DAYS festival.   Our participation has been a yearly event for at least the past decade.

On May 18, 2012 BBBO was invited to be a guest science presenters at Rochester’s Charles T. Lunsford School 19’s DISCOVERY THROUGH SCIENCE DAY where several classes of 4th and 5th graders were scheduled one at a time for our BBBO presentation.   It was a successful and rewarding experience with the students responding well and asking very thoughtful questions.  This is the third time that BBBO has participated in this annual school event.  Pat Lovallo
