Family Solstice Activities

After a brief update on the Summer Learning Program at the Ames Middle School, we presented this month's edition of Family Talk, produced by Sandra Looft, and explore the many events and activities that families can enjoy on these longest days of the year. Sandra speaks with Ed Engle of Ames Area Astronomers about the "Star B Q" event this Saturday, June 21, and then visits with Sydney Algreen of Story County Conservation about catching fireflies with children, and two other upcoming events, the Doolittle Prairie Evening Walk, on June 25, and the Moonlight Paddle in July. Get out your tents! We also introduce the Great American Backyard Campout, scheduled for June 28, and listen to Andy Griffith tell a classic campfire story. Music by Frances England, The Mills Brothers, and the Waterboys.
