Rogers, Robert Skyscraper Acres History,

Performing Arts- Puppetry
Celebrating Building a better world: What's way up there on the top of that gleaming new skyscraper? that surprising fringe of green that overlooks the hustle and bustle of the busy city below? It's an old fashioned farm, tended by Hank Bluejeans, whose family has grown fruits and vegetables season after season, as far back as anyone can remember. Well, it wasn't always so way up high. How did it get there? And why? This is a story about embracing the future while cherishing the past - or roots, as Hank Blujeans might say.

The nest box building program includes a PowerPoint presentation on bluebirds and other birds with John Rogers. This dynamic and colorful PowerPoint presentation will educate the audience on bluebirds, other birds, and how to properly place their box, etc. The slide program will add about 45 minutes, making the total time up to 90 minutes. Customized as needed. (Please refer to the other listing for a description of the full length, stand alone PowerPoint presentation.) Children, adults, and families love this hands-on activity, and it provides an opportunity to help bluebirds, other birds, and the environment, too.
