Volunteer Orientation: American Kestrel Study

During this volunteer orientation we will give a brief background about the study and go over data collection protocols, which have changed from prior seasons. This is also where we will gather information from participants on their availability, willingness to travel, and which aspects of the study they wish to be involved in. We will use this information to build teams, assign nestbox clusters, and arrange field meetings to train with project scientists. The Kestrel Study Orientation will be offered on both Thursday 2/22 and Friday 2/23. Participants need only sign up for one of these dates.

Books and Bridges: David Bokovoy

An examination of the writings of the Old Testament prophets from the standpoint of social justice, not religious authority. These figures had a lot to say about how society should be constructed to help the disadvantaged and why it's important to speak truth to power and entrenched authority. Led by Utah State University professor of Religious and Jewish Studies David Bokovoy. This event is organized by Books & Bridges — a community institute of ideas and conversation. Our mission is to facilitate discussion on the best of human thought. We explore the wisdoms of the world and apply them to modern life. We have no political, religious or ideological affiliation. In a society divided by uncivil discourse, the beauty of the humanities—novels, history, philosophy, poetry, ethics and epics—lifts us to our better angels. In our busy world we need space for friends and fellow learners to do a little more heart-to-heart and mind-to-mind.
