Annie Garde gets a tour of Missoula's Silver Summit All-Abilities Playground from Heath, Jenny, Logan, Adam, Lisa and Mataya.
Recently, "Pea Green Boat" Skipper Annie Garde took a tour of Silver Summit, a "playground for everyone" in Missoula's McCormick Park. It's an all-abilities playround that invites children excited by the brightly-colored equipment and welcoming atmosphere to discover nooks, crannies and equipment that can accommodate their bodies, their mobility devices, and their ways of playing. Listen as Heath, Jenny, Logan, Adam, Lisa and Mataya show Annie their favorite spots at Silver Summit.
Glenn Marangelo of the Missoula Insectarium will join Annie for a 'Pea Green Boat' all about moths of Montana, Wednesday, August 30 at 4 p.m.
They'll talk about the western sheepmoth (Hemileuca eglanterina), which Glenn calls" one of the most beautiful moths we can find in Montana," and the confusing petrophila moth (Petrophila confusalis), "which is probably the most amazing little moth in terms of its lifecycle. A great example (as we'll see) of never saying 'never' in regard to the insect world," Marangelo says.
"The myth is that autistic kids sometimes don't feel emotion, and that is just not true at all. I can say from personal experience that autistic kids have emotions," says Logan, who joins Annie to clear up some misconceptions you might have about autism.
Learn about autism from Logan and his mom Lisa on this episode of "Kids Like You And Me."
Every Friday through May 12, Annie will be giving away Bill Harley related prizes during the "Pea Green Boat." Tune in between 4:00 - 5:00 p.m. on MTPR for your chance to win t-shirts, books and CDs from Bill Harley.
