Radnor Library and Radnor Conservancy will be screening this hour-long film at Radnor Township Building on Tuesday, February 21 @ 7:00pm. It’s free. I hope you’ll join us.

As a kid, Roderigo Medellin, star of Natural World: The Bat Man of Mexico kept vampire bats. Sometimes, he used his own blood to feed the bats. Yes.

These days all bats have become Medellin’s thing; he has devoted his life to saving and protecting them. Right now the bat man is saving the lesser long-nosed bat. It is also known as the tequila bat because it pollinates the agave plant from which tequila is made.

No lesser long-nosed bats, no tequila.

Next weekend we’ll be heading out to Jenkins Arboretum and Gardens again!

Think about wearing your wellies and taking a stroll through Jenkins before or after listening to Larry Weaner, landscape designer par excellence…

February 17-20 is also the weekend of the GBBC.

See you at Jenkins–

It’s that time again…one of my favorite events is coming up on this Saturday, February 11, 10:00AM.

This year it’s even bigger than before because we are partnering with Tredyffrin Bird Town and we’ll be meeting at Jenkins Arboretum & Gardens in Devon.

Our good friend Lou Muth (owner of Do It Best Hardware in Wayne) has loaded up my trunk with bags of birdseed, suet, and other goodies that your birds will just love. Every year, Lou has donated to our event. It’s a tradition now that after the GBBC presentation, we have a raffle and the odds are pretty good that you’ll go home with something!

Please join us. I hope to see you there…

Filmmakers John Gussman, Jessica Plumb, Sarah Hart have created this award-winning film about the largest dam removal project in the history of the United States and the extraordinary effort to restore an eco-system and set a river free. (about an hour in length)

Please join us for this first film of our winter/spring conservation series, JACKSON HOLE WILD ON TOUR. Between now and May, 2017, we’ll be screening award-winning, outstanding films that were entered at the 2015 Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival.

All of the filmmakers, who are passionate about their craft and the world we live in, love sharing their films with smaller audiences. They are hoping that it invites discussion after the screening and that it inspires people. The artists, who themselves are involved in conservation, hope to empower us in our local communities to get involved.

Voices From Mt. Pleasant–the podcast

first-baptist-churchEnjoy the podcast of Voices of Mt. Pleasant–a recording made of our recent event (12/13/16) at First Baptist Church of Wayne. Thank you to Tom Ellis for another great podcast for posterity…as I like to think of them. Every year at this time, I look back on all our partnerships with Radnor Historical Society throughout the year and I am grateful that most of them are online…because of Tom.

On that night in Mt. Pleasant, about 100 of us filled the church with song… and then some of us read aloud the personal narratives that are based on oral histories collected by Dr. Sharon Schwarze, PhD, and her students at Cabrini College (Cabrini University).

Happy Holidays to All!

Pam
