Childhood Musings

Do you have that first letter to a boy? 
Adults read things they wrote as kids this Sunday. (CBC Radio)

Something you wrote your parents from Summer camp or even an old book report?

CBC Radio is presenting a show called Grownups Read Things They Wrote as Kids. 

It's an open mic evening and everyone's invited to read those first creations in front of a room full of strangers.

It's fun and sometimes pretty darn revealing. 

These performances will be recorded for broadcast later this Summer. That's at the Artful Dodger on Sunday.

Marsh Life

It's a celebration of wildlife, hiking and all things outdoors.

Wings Over Wascana or WOW is a festival that happens in May to celebrate International Migratory Bird Day.

Saturday there will be a chance for nature lovers to bird and turtle watch and take a tour of the marsh. 

There will also be a chance to learn about the Goat Grazing Project and to see the goats get to work protecting the environment from invasive species.

It's all happening at the Habitat Conservation Area on Saturday.
