Come out this Thursday, August 14, at7:00 p.m. to hear Dr. Paul A. Johnsgard 
Closing out Wachiska Audubon’s summer schedule of activities will be a highlight for bird lovers and nature enthusiasts. Come out this Thursday, August 14, at 7:00 p.m. to hear Dr. Paul A. Johnsgard discuss the information and photos in his latest book, Yellowstone Wildlife: Ecology and Natural History of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. This book is illustrated with Paul’s drawings along with around 40 photographs by his one-time student, Thomas R. Mangelsen. This large book would be a wonderful coffee table addition.

For those who don’t yet know Dr. Johnsgard, he has written over 60 books on nature, ecology, birds, and other topics including fiction. Besides writing and drawing, Paul is an exceptional photographer and carver. He is Foundation Professor of Biological Sciences Emeritus at UNL. He has been the recipient of many awards including National Audubon’s
Charles H. Callison Award.

Dr. Johnsgard is truly a great friend of Audubon and Wachiska. At the drop of the hat he has always been willing to help however he can over the past 40 years. Please join us to hear about one of his latest endeavors, that of Yellowstone and the Teton National Park region.

This free public presentation will take place in the Dick Administration auditorium on Union College campus, 3800 South 48th Street, in Lincoln. From 48th and Calvert streets, go one block south to the north end of the campus. Now that the new science building is finished, parking is still adequate even though it is not in the same place! You may park on both sides of South 48th Street as well as in the lots of the SDA Church and behind Prescott Hall and the gymnasium. No permits are needed, but respect the few places that are designated for specific purposes.

ONE THING TO REMEMBER THIS MONTH: We will need to use only the west doors of the Dick building due to renovation inside. Unfortunately, the handicapped ramp will not be accessible this month. The elevator will still be useable inside.

Finally, refreshments are always served after the presentation. This time will be an opportunity to purchase the new design of Wachiska t-shirts, so bring your checkbooks. The cost including tax is $18. Sizes are still available in S-XXL.

Hope to see you all Thursday night to learn about Yellowstone and the Tetons and view dazzling photos.

Thank you for your interest in and support of Wachiska Audubon!
