A baby aplomado raptor visited the show in July

Hi everybody,
It’s going to be an exciting week on the Pea Green boat. Lots of visitors. Take a look at what’s coming up.

On Tuesday, we’ll have Nature Notes with Jackie Wedell. In the past she’s talked about owls, otters and igloos. Tomorrow she’s going to talk about –well, I’ll let you find out for yourselves. Tune in!

On Wednesday, Janet Zupan, one of my favorite readers, will share, for the first time, a story she wrote herself.  It’s a really good one.

"Sound of Sun"

Wolf Teeth, poems by Henry Real Bird

I can always ride a beautiful pony
and walk through the pines
as the bell on the horse's noseband rings
in the whisper of wind through trees.

Rich fragrances carry love home
like a bird carries hose hair to its nest.
Words of love build a house of love.
Let feeling go, way out in the heart. Fly in love.

I have asked that nothing clings to your heart
as you go riding through life
filled with happiness and joy. The beautiful feelings of your love
bled the sunrise of a purple-topped sky,
above an orange-pink spray

Childhood Hunger

Last night I was eating dinner at a restaurant in Missoula and there were flyers on all the tables from the group No Kid Hungry letting people know that a portion of what they spent on dinner would go to services that help feed hungry children.

Before I go on, I better offer up my own disclaimer. I work for an agency that is part of a coalition working to end childhood hunger and as you might well imagine, there are no easy solutions to this problem.  There are millions of families who don’t have enough food.  The current phrase to describe this is food insecurity.
