Breathe fresh spring air as we explore one of the most ecologically diverse habitats in Kansas! We’ll hike the prairie/savannah at Woodson State Lake and the Ancient Tree Trail at Cross-Timbers State Park, Toronto Lake. Weather permitting, we plan to canoe Fall River Saturday afternoon. Bring your colleagues for a weekend of outdoor fun and collaboration!
“When starting a planting “box” for growing Wisconsin Fast Plants we were going to plant we noticed a small single leaf had shot up through the soil. We let the plant grow and it sent out a stem having three leaves a’ top. It has grown to a good size. Each stem it has grown averages 25 cm (nine inches) long. The pattern on the leaves is clover-like (small white heart shape) and the leaves are small and go to a rounded point. Small hairs have grown the length of the stems. Ten stems have counted so far and many more are growing. We have researched through books and have found nothing on this, and horticulture teachers have seen and cannot identify the plant. We would like information on the plant. If you know internet sites or books that will identify the species please send URLs, links, or titles, it would be very much appreciated.”
Updates on Recent Humanoid Fossil Finds and Their Consequences

Dr. Wilson will examine the wealth of new discoveries in the last 4-5 years. In light of them, he will then examine how, and if, that changes our understanding of human evolution, and our relationships to historically important species and historic inhabitants of Africa, Europe and Asia, like the Neanderthals, Cro-Magnons and others.
