Happy Holidays from the Six Artists Six Prairies Project!
It's the time of year when so many of us are preoccupied with preparations for those special days we share with family and friends. The past couple of years I've taken time out to walk in the prairies with those close to my heart. We enjoy the quiet togetherness, sharing thoughts or none, exclaiming when a bird suddenly jumps out of the bushes and smiling at their calls and song. This year the prairies seem particularly beautiful and the Sandhill Cranes are still flying overhead, calling as they circle. It's a great time to be in nature, appreciating that we still have these pristine places to enjoy in peace. We are so grateful for our conservation partners! The artists of the Six Artists Six Pairies Project wish each of you the happiest of holidays and the joy of wonder and wander!
