RAYMOND After a Christmas break, Sunday Afternoon Live returns to the Raymond Theatre at 2 p.m. on Jan. 23 with renowned naturalist Brent Nixon.
Nixon is the CEO/president of Nature Talks Are you listening? an organization dedicated to environmental education and endangered species research in the wild. He created the non-profit Adventures in Nature more than eight years ago to answer growing requests from public education facilities and community groups for quality information about our environment and the creatures that dwell within it.
During his Pacific County appearance, he will be presenting 12 outreach programs to the Raymond, South Bend, Willapa Valley, Ocosta and Long Beach schools.
Nixon wrote, directed, acted in, narrated and produced Humpback Whales, a DVD that addresses the natural history of the North Pacific humpbacks. From that, more than 3,500 tapes, 7,000 DVDs, and corresponding curriculum guides have been distributed to public schools throughout the U.S. and other countries.
Being able to relate to whatever is happening in the world became the foundation of how Nixons presentations came to life. He says, Life is funny. There are funny things going on all the time around us, and that is what Nature Talks is all about. His goal is to get his audiences to contemplate what is in front of them and to help them find the beauty that exists in all things.
Dr. and Mrs. Richard Wilson, South Bend Pharmacy and Willapa Veterinary Service are sponsoring Nixons performance.
Tickets can now be purchased at South Bend Pharmacy, Sagens Pharmacy in Raymond, and at the theater for $10 adults and $5 children, or by sending an SASE to SAL, P.O. Box 221, South Bend, WA 98586 or e-mailing email@example.com.
