Nature- Environment,
Nature- Gardening
Vanishing Bees, Butterflies and Bats Bees are vanishing from the face of the earth! The Monarch Butterfly is becoming extinct. The saying, “going batty” will be a thing of the past as well. Bats are declining rapidly. Why should we care? Gary Feldman will show you why we need these life-sustaining members of our ecosystem more than you think, what their purpose is, and why we can’t live without them. Learn when the phenomenon called colony collapse started and what is wiping the bees out of existence. What will happen without them? Will our ecosystem and people change? Learn what the impact will be at our supermarkets. Learn how you can keep the “buzz” still humming, keep the butterflies flourishing, and why we all need to go batty to save the bats.

golub, jane Talking with Your Children About Sexuality Health & Fitness- Other,
Life Skills- Parenting
Today’s world has become a very sexually explicit one, yet one that so lacks age-appropriate or accurate information. The messages children are bombarded with are not always the messages parents are comfortable with. Parents want their children to have healthy and rewarding lives, yet many parents find it difficult to talk about sexual issues-especially with their own children. Parents are children's primary educators, and talking about sexuality offers them a unique and important opportunity to share not only accurate information but their own family values and beliefs as well. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, when parents talk with their children early, honestly and comfortably about a wide variety of sexuality topics, their children are less likely to engage in risky behaviors. These workshops are designed to help parents become more comfortable in talking about these sensitive issues with their children of all ages, and why such communication is so vital to keeping children safe and healthy.
