    - Join us for an adventure from the heartland of the US to Yellowstone National Park, north to Glacier National Park and the Rocky Mountains into Canada. In the heartland see a small start towards the restoration of the prairie, but also major changes as wind farms and oil rigs dotted the sweeping vistas of wheat, soy and corn. Some natural changes included the rebirth of Yellowstone forests, years after the great fire while the colorful hot springs and towering geysers remain iconic. Heading north there is an incredible variety of wildlife from tiny creatures, birds and plants to the massive herds of bison and stately elk, but also towering mountains with rapidly receding of glaciers and roaring waterfalls. Join us for a scenic tour of the wildlife and the changing nature of the wild west.

    Location-themed buffet dinner and lecture or lecture only (7:30pm start). Pre-registration required for dinner by 6pm Tuesday, February 9. Online registration available.

    - The music of THE SLAMBOVIAN CIRCUS OF DREAMS has been variously described as “hillbilly-Floyd,” “folk-pop,” “alt-country, roots-rock,” and “surreal Americana;” a clear indicator of its singularly indescribable uniqueness. Dancing freely between all existing religious and philosophical mythologies, the music is uplifting, empowering, and a lot of fun.
