Happy New Year and welcome to Spring 2018. During this semester our students, curators, and collaborators will share outdoors activities with emphasis on specific learning topics. The topics are related to higher education courses also being taught this term.
Our first topic is the Environment. The focus is sustainability, climate, food, lands, reducing human impact, etc. Other topics will be open based on current interest and news.
We start our Spring 2018 with an outdoors Visit to the Center of Environmental Studies of Comunitat Valenciana in Spain.
Solar and wind exhibits outside main building of Center of Environmental Studies of Valencian Community. The center has a sample of energy sources used in Spain.
More photos of their farm and garden coming soon. Visit their website

#WindEnergy in #Kansas. ==> “In the first three months of 2017, two wind farms — the 200-megawatt Cimarron Bend II wind farm in Clark County and the 280-megawatt Western Plains wind farm in Ford County — came on line. That brings Kansas to 4,931 megawatts of generation capacity, according to AWEA.” (http://www.kansas.com/news/business/article148442094.html) Following Melissa & Mark Thompson on their way to #Colorado.
