Words for Birds at Audubon Central
In the middle of April, I took part in Words for Birds, a new program at Spring Creek Prairie for adults and children.
Nebraska poet Roy Scheele worked with the adult group, and I enjoyed the opportunity to work with three remarkable young ladies.
Twyla Hansen served as the MC along with poet Amy Plettner.
I posted some photographs from the first of many such events at beautiful Spring Creek Prairie.
Eight youngsters had signed up for the children's section, but I suspect the potential for rain kept some away--they missed out on a lot of fun. The three young ladies read Barn Owl poems and others--we utilized a poem about Barn Owls by my friend, the late Nebraska poet Don. Welch.
I hope that this event becomes annual. Congratulations to all who took part.
