Short Cuts:Strictly for the birds

Walter C. Crawford Jr. and friend

What do birds have to do with team building? The World Bird Sanctuary in St. Louis, Mo., makes a convincing argument that damage to the earth threatens certain bird species. Cooperation is the key to saving them and the environment. The workplace parallel: It also takes cooperation to effect positive change in the business world.

The organization makes its point through educational programs for groups of 100 to 1,000 people. Involving dramatic aerial displays by hawks, owls and vultures, sessions underline how environmental issues impact all of us, and how we all must do our part to reverse dangerous trends.

Programs begin with a speech by Walter C. Crawford Jr., the sanctuary’s executive director, followed by the birds’ impressive show. Also on site is a new rehabilitation clinic and educational center. (636) 938-6193 or go to
