First begun in 1955, The Logan Christmas Bird Count is our Chapter’s contribution to the world’s largest, oldest citizen science project on Earth. This will be the 118th year of the Audubon Christmas Bird Count, and 57th for the Cache Valley Christmas Bird Count which will be on Saturday, December 16, 2017. Please join us.
We can use beginners as well as experienced birders to find owls, falcons, and odd ducks, even feathered ones. Contact Val Grant, 435-752-7572, or Hilary Shughart firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to join the Count.

Wise gardeners and farmers proclaim they don’t “grow plants,” they grow soil! While “dirt” is just a medium to anchor plant roots, SOIL is a living ecosystem teaming with bacteria, fungi, worms, archea, nematodes, and
arthropods. Whether you’re growing kale, tomatoes, peaches or pistachios—or just getting started with a bare patch of dirt and a bunch of garden dreams—Cache Soil to Table (CS2T) intern Joe Montoya and Jeanne Wallace will teach
key concepts that will help you understand your soil and the best management strategies to:
prevent mineral deficiencies in your plants
maximize plant health and vigor
naturally inhibit pests and plant diseases
improve the flavor and nutrient-density of your crops
Should you till the soil? Well, that depends… What’s the best way to make
compost? Well, that depends…. What’s a better mulch: straw or wood chips?
Should you use cover crops? Well, that depends…
Equipped with an understanding of the Soil-Food Web, you’ll be empowered to create innovative, individualized (and low-cost) solutions to these and other questions.

Sherry Meidell will be talking about the process of illustrating the picture book The Centaur by May Swenson, published by Utah State University Press.
She will talk about the illustration process from the first reading of the manuscript to getting the new box of illustrated books. She will also talk about the artistic life and how to keep the creative portion of your life
active, how to overcome fear and put paint to paper. And she will do just that put some paint to paper, demonstrating some watercolor painting.
Bring your sketchbook and join the fun!
