The Daily News - June 21, 2014:

Students planted a Schoolyard Habitat Thursday morning at Perry Central School. This project will help Perry Central School learn about wildlife in our region. Buffalo Audubon Society naturalist Tom Kerr has guided students in the development of the habitat through a grant funded by the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo.

Students led the design and construction of this habitat, Kerr said. It will feature native plant species that are known to attract both resident and migratory birds. In addition Buffalo Audubon will provide bird-­focused curricular elements that connect students with birds found throughout their community.

This habitat will give students a real accomplishment of which they can be proud. They will also help create an outdoor classroom that can be used by future classes and enjoyed by all local residents, as well as by resident and migratory wildlife. In addition, it introduces students to natural areas in their own neighborhoods that they can continue to visit with their families.
