First-grade students at Goldie Feldman Academy chose the Wildlife Center of Venice as the beneficiary of their annual mitzvah (good act) project, following an inspirational visit Nov. 4 from Peg Magee, a volunteer at the center. In addition to discussing the center’s wildlife rescue efforts, Magee brought a squirrel’s nest to show to the children. The students asked numerous questions and also shared their own animal-rescue experiences. “My daddy picked up a turtle that was on the road,” said one student.
