Connecting with the other side of the planet! This morning I presented my research via zoom to a 4th grade class at the International Baccalaureate School in Saudi Arabia. The students were full of wonderful questions - what a joy.
February 25, 2020 This morning, Harry Hutchins, one of the pioneers of Clark's nutcracker and whitebark pine research, interviewed me on his radio show, "A talk on the wild side", www.kaxe.org. Good fun.
Harry, Suneva and I when Harry joined us in the field in Wyoming in 2016.
I'll be presenting at the Wenatchee River Institute April 15, 2020, then at the Yakima Valley Audubon meeting April 23, 2020. Come join me!
The presentations have been postponed until 2021 due to COVID-19. Stay tuned for new dates.
The Clark's nutcracker research was featured in Crossing Boundaries's high school science curriculum. See Taza Schaming's Crossing Boundaries profile for three videos. A science lesson which uses one of the videos, Discovering the Ecological Roles of Birds, is included in the book, Birds Without Borders, by Trautmann N. M. et al. (2015). The lesson is available as a free download.
