UCP Lifelinks in Tallahassee Goes Wild At St. Marks’ Conservation Center

Program participants from UCP Lifelinks in Tallahassee recently visited St. Marks Wildlife where they learned about insects, birds of prey, mammals and Florida’s natural history as well as community inclusion and the role everyone plays in protecting Florida. Inclusion means that all people, regardless of their varying ability, mobility or health care needs, have the right to be respected and appreciated as valuable members of our communities. This includes access and participation in recreational activities as well as engagement in environmental conservation that protects the outdoors and wildlife. For this reason, conservation often intersects with the concept with inclusion. UCP Lifelinks in Tallahassee thanks St. Mark’s Wildlife Conservation Area for the awesome presentation today (and for time with the baby squirrel … probably our favorite!)

At Fox49, TV personalities and producers welcomed UCP Lifelinks into the studio and shared what a typical day might be like for a general assignment reporter. The visit offered program participants a real life glimpse into the broadcasting industry including a tour of the evening newsroom and a talk with on-air professionals. Hometown stars from Lifelinks team took turns being the “talent” (actor), the director, camera operator, and audio operator while others wanted the spotlight all to themselves. Everyone took turns rotating through until he/she found a point of interest during the tour. Many thanks to Fox49 in Tallahassee!
