Join Jackie Wedell for "Nature Notes " on the Pea Green Boat today. She'll be talking about a very young boy who liked to chirp with chickadees, hoot with owls, and howl with wolves. Did the wolves respond? You may get a chance to howl yourself. Tune in for the fun between 4 and 5 p.m.
Settle on your perch this afternoon and listen to the whoosh of feathers, the jingle of jesses, and the calls of birds. Meanwhile Kate Davis, director of Raptors of the Rockies, will educate us about the habits and habitats of the birds she cares for. We may even "see" an eagle! Tune in today between 4 and 5 p.m. and join the fun.
Which animals stay warmest in winter? Brian Williams from the Montana Natural History Center will conduct an experiment today on the Pea Green Boat to help us find the answer. Join us today between 4 and 5:00 p.m.
While the garden lies sleeping under a blanket of snow, what's a young gardener to do? Master gardener Jamison Starbuck is full of ideas and will visit the Pea Green Boat to share them with us. I think we might be planting something besides ideas, too. Tune in between 4 & 5 p.m. to join the fun.
Annie and Asa walk through the Figurative Modernist exhibit in the Paxson Gallery on the UM campus. During this short segment, Asa and his art teacher, Jennifer Bardsley, talk about color, negative space, shape, and more.
Tune in this afternoon between 4 and 5 pm to hear the art museum tour and Classics for Kids.
Figurative Modernists: Picasso, Chagall and other Masterpieces from a Private Collection Through February 8, 2014 Paxson Gallery
Today on the Pea Green Boat, Naomi Lewin, host of Classics for Kids, will talk about musical fantasies. Originally, a musical fantasy was a piece that instrumentalists made up as they went along. Eventually, fantasies evolved into pieces that composers built out of various melodies they liked -- like the Scottish folk tunes that Max Bruch put into his Scottish Fantasy for violin and orchestra.
On the Pea Green Boat today, Braden came over from the Missoula Public Library and read three good books. Here are the titles, in case you want to go to the library and take the books out to reread them and enjoy the terrific illustrations:
My Lucky Day by Keiko Kasza
Crankee Doodle by Tom Angleberger
Nothing by Mick Inkpen
Every Monday we're lucky to have librarians visit and share their recent favorite stories.
