Radio Waves: Taron on urban bison, urban nature trails & butterflies on the roof

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

OK, that was a bit of a trick in the title, I was talking about a bison sculpture in an urban setting, not an urban bison.

Doug Taron talks about the bison sculpture that just dropped in, nature trails in an urban setting and butterflies on the roof on ``Outside'' this afternoon.

The curator of biology at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum talks about the latest butterfly project a the Nature Museum.

The trails are outside of the Nature Museum and act as a lead-in to the inside experience. And it is in a very densely traveled area on the corner of Fullerton and Cannon, just north of the Lincoln Park Zoo.

"Outside" airs from 4:30-5 p.m. Mondays on WKCC-FM (91.1) in Kankakee. Rebroadcasts of the show are at 12:30 p.m. on Sundays.

Laurel Soper, the web tech and digital media person for KCC, has put together the podcast system here.
