Trials and Triumphs Program

February 3 @ 2:00 pm

The O’Brien County Conservation Board is pleased to partner with local libraries for another year of the Conservation Series.  The topic for February is a look at “Trials and Triumphs” in our natural world.

What happened to birds so great in numbers that they darkened the sky?  Where are the clams that once covered the bottoms of ours streams?  Would you believe that you can find them at the end of a fly fishing rod and in the middle of your coat?

This library program features some stories of destruction of our natural resources but will end on a high note of encouragement for the future.  It features literary works such as “She is Wearing a Dead Bird on Her Head” by Kathryn Lasky, “The Feather Thief” by Kirk Wallace Johnson and “From the Bottom Up” By Chad Pregracke as well as other titles.  There will also be a stunning collection of confiscated items from wildlife animal trade on display.

Join the O’Brien County Naturalist at the Sheldon Public Library on Monday, February 3 at 2:00 p.m.  This interactive program will last approximately 45 minutes and is suitable for people of all ages.
