Trumpeter Swans, Cuban Farmers and Ames in Winter

This show starts with a phenology report on trumpeter swans from wildlife specialist Pat Schlarbaum. Then there's an interview with Iowa farmers George Naylor and Patti Edwardson about their recent trip to Cuba and the two farming-related conferences they attended there. Hear George and Patti's impressions of Cuban farming, agro-ecology, Cuban society, and more. Finally, Allyson Walter of Ames Convention and Visitors' Bureau tells us about the many things to do (both adult and family-related) in Ames during the cold snowy weather and for the New Year celebrations.
