Enjoy a light catered lunch and a lecture by nature writer and communication consultant, Doreen Pfost.

Learn about the importance of the central Platte River to migrating cranes and waterfowl and hear passages from her book, This River Beneath the Sky: A Year on the Platte (University of Nebraska Press, 2016), a collection of essays that follow the Platte River through the changing seasons. In addition, Pfost will share the story of an irrigation project that threatened the river’s (and potentially the cranes’) demise, but ultimately led to the creation of Audubon’s Rowe Sanctuary. A Wisconsin native, Pfost lived for six years in Nebraska, where she immersed herself – figuratively and literally – in the Platte River to learn about its ways, its wildlife, and its history. Each spring since 2005, Pfost has served as a volunteer tour guide at Rowe Sanctuary.

Entering Casablanca is easy, getting out is much harder, especially if your name is on the Nazis' most-wanted list. At the top of the list is Czech Resistance leader Victor Laszlo, whose only hope is Rick Blaine, a cynical American who sticks his neck out for no one - especially Victor's wife Ilsa, the ex-lover who broke his heart. So when Ilsa offers herself in exchange for Laszlo's safe transport out of the country, the bitter Rick must decide what's more important. From a play by Murray Burnett and Joan Alison. Originally released as a motion picture in 1942.
