SOAR and Feathers and Verses in Aurora, July 7 and 14
On July 7 and again on July 14, I served as one of the featured presenters for SOAR, sponsored by the Prairie Plains Resource Institute in Aurora.
As the photographs suggest, the the students learned about a dozen or so birds, including Prairie Chickens, including their songs. They
all also colored birds of their choice--and with the colors that appealed to them.
SOAR--Summer Orientation about Rivers--offers a broad range of educational programs. And I was thrilled to take part in this year's fanfare.
On July 7 (Once I figured out just where the event took place in Aurora) and again on July 14, I offered four twenty-minute programs and enjoyed myself considerably.
The folks at the Prairie Plains make important contributions to the people of Nebraska, and I hope to take part in the program in the summer of 2015.
I especially enjoy working with Amy Jones, Bill Snyder's energetic and wonderfully organized daughter.
