April 6th: A Message from the Director

A Message from the Director: 4-6-2020

It is warming up outside and Spring is in the air. As we continue to stay at home teleworking, educating our children, and caring for our loved ones I hope you are able to spend a little time outside enjoying the warmth of the sun. As I work from my home computer and look out the window I have seen three Stellar’s Blue Jays hanging out in a Ponderosa Pine, Robins hunting for worms, and my first Western Bluebird. As I walk around my garden, I see tulips and daffodils starting to come up. These are all signs that Spring has arrived. As I reflect on the beauty that Mother Nature brings to us every day, I send my heartfelt blessings on the wind to all who are struggling during this difficult time.

Like so many of you, I am getting “Cabin Fever” and look forward to the time when we can all be together again. It may be a while yet before we can celebrate the wonderful new PIVOT exhibit and the exciting public programs we have planned for the summer. In the meantime, I hope you are staying safe and well. I look forward to seeing you soon!
