The weekend starts at 5 p.m. Friday and ends at 10 a.m. Sunday.
David Stokes is a naturalist, educator, and entertainer who has been the sole energizing force behind The Frog Chorus Nature Education since 2001. Previously he was with the Schlitz Audubon Center in Milwaukee as director of education for family and elementary programs. He has taught students and families since 1972, while at Michigan State University, where he received his degrees. For him the most important part of nature education is being involved, hands-on, and interactive. He uses humor, songs, stories, live animals, and lots of props (concept facilitators) in his teaching. He is interested in fostering a sense of wonder, working with parents and children together, teaching on different levels, and having people enjoy the experience so much they want to do it again. His programs have been described as “humorous, highly interactive, and solid education.”
