  • Writer, birder Nelson to read

    Writer and birder Kent Nelson of Colorado will read from his work Tuesday, April 21 at 7 p.m. at Glen Helen. (submitted photo)

    Kent Nelson’s twin passions for writing and birding work well together. For instance, birding takes him to remote and exotic locations, such as an Aleutian island in Alaska, where the Yupik village he visited inspired a short story — about birders who go to Alaska.

  • Rise against the green Glen invaders

    Glen volunteer Vincent Laino helped to clear invasive honeysuckle from the Glen over the summer.

    If weeding the flower garden out back sounds bad, imagine weeding a forest. Then imagine that forest encircled by an army of invasive species.
