Our local news station KPAX surprised us at our latest presentation at the Montana Natural History Center. We were setting up and the MNHC Program Coordinator said "Hi guys...meet the news." As the room filled up it was easy to ignore the camerawoman with her big gold camera. We had nearly 80 people packet into the large room at the History Center, which left only standing room for the latecomers.
Our theme was "Survival!", and it was well received, if not a bit over the heads of the youngest in the crowd. Survival and Environmental Change is one of our school programs and we were testing it out on the ever so enthusiastic MNHC members. Excellent program...for 2nd-8th graders. My favorite part was the activity at the end where we compare photos of different animals and ask the audience to choose which one is more likely to survive. Lots of fun!
We'll have another public presentation at the MNHC in the spring. Don't miss it!
