Spring without NYSK

The show is taking a break for a short time because Razorback Softball is broadcasting during my regularly scheduled time slot. Never fear, you can enjoy the bursting buds of springtime (like this Cercis canadensis) until we return on April 11th!

Works of Aldo Leopold

The March 2nd episode (download podcast here) was inspired by an event held at Hobbs State Park on March 5th that celebrated Aldo Leopold, an early 20th century naturalist who is considered by some to be the grandfather of the conservation movement. Leopold's most famous work, A Sand County Almanac, beautifully expresses his ideas about the relationship between man and nature. For some excerpts from his works, click here.

The news in nature:

As for music, we heard from Nick Drake, Almanac Singers, The Whites, Neil Young, and more! We even heard from our friends the thrushes, including the Hermit Thrush and Veery.
