Jim Jablonski--Advocacy Chair, co-Education Chair, and co-WingTips Editor--says: Please watch this trailer, especially if you missed our March 3 meeting where the people who came together in this project showed and discussed the video. They were construction supervisor Walt Gachuk, graduate film student Najada Davis, and Black River Audubon kestrel chairperson Larry Wilson. Also in the video and present at the meeting were Chad and Chris Saladin, Cleveland's urban peregrine falcon experts, and several of Mr. Gachuk's construction colleagues.
