Rogers, John ALL ABOUT BLUEBIRDS - and MORE Nature- Animals,
Nature- Other,
Science
Learn about New York State’s official bird, the Eastern Bluebird, from a recognized expert. This highly acclaimed program about nature is educational and enjoyable. Program content and length can be customized for children, adults, or families. John Rogers maintains hundreds of bluebird nest boxes, and has fledged over 13,000 bluebirds. The focus is on bluebirds, including the nesting cycle (building nests, egg laying, raising young etc.) and the proper use of bluebird boxes. But, there is more, too. Mr. Rogers opens young and older hearts and minds to bluebirds, other birds, butterflies, wildflowers, and nature appreciation. With visually beautiful photographs, bird sounds, and a sincere, enthusiastic presentation style, this PowerPoint program has delighted and educated people throughout NY State. The children's program is especially interactive and engaging, with children being encouraged to share their nature experiences. Examples of excellent books on bluebirds encourage further reading. As an option, a build-your-own bluebird box program (for all age groups) with all materials provided is also available. (see listing)

Edgecomb, Diane Insect Comedy Nature- Other,
Performing Arts- Storytelling,
Science
Insect Comedy takes a delightful look at our Six-legged friends. In Princess Firefly entertaining facts are served up along with plenty of silliness as the Princess ponders, “Who will be the bug I will love?” Kate's Acorn, one of Diane's original stories, teaches about the importance of soil creatures in the life cycle of plants. And in another backyard tale we learn about when to keep or let insects go. Diane's hilarious interpretations of Mr. Mosquito, Mr. Gnat, Old King Lampyradie Beetle keep us laughing as we take a closer look at the world of insects. "From the Academy's point of view, the storytelling could not have worked better as a public program. The stories you told, captivated and fascinated our audience. I was impressed that they would not let you leave the stage without an encore performance. Diane your storytelling is fantastic!" Linda Wolf, Public Programs Coordinator, The Academy of Natural Sciences, Philadelphia, PA
