Professor Guano's Favorite Oddball Bird Stories from Glacier Country 
Date: January 19, 2017
Time: 6:00 - 8:00 pm
Presented by: Professor Guano
Details: The professor bears a superficial resemblance to Denny Olson, local biologist and naturalist who has been using humor and theater to teach natural history for over 40 years. He also, strangely, resembles "Critterman" who was on NBC TV for a few years. Just sayin' ... Join us for an evening of fun and learning -- and you'll be able to impress your friends at your next party with the Professor's stories!

Details: Tom will take us back in time to 1926…when the Great Northern Railroad was developing the Park…as a dude ranch! Join the dudes and wranglers on the five day, 69 mile south Circle Trail Ride to five of the Park’s famous chalets and hotels. This slide presentation will put you on that trail ride and show you the places they stayed, what they ate, how much it cost and how the dudes got to the Park. It’ll be a ride to remember!
