Many of the birds that visit our yards during the summer lead a fascinating double life. These birds make an amazing journey between summer in Minnesota and winter in Costa Rica and Central America. Patty Mueller, Board President of Tropical Wings, will speak about these tiny, brave travelers and local efforts to support migratory bird education and habitat conservation. Tropical Wings is a locally founded non-profit organization that has formed partnerships with parks and reserves in Costa Rica to promote the quality habitat of our shared migratory birds, including exchanges with park professionals from both countries. As a shared resource, these birds play a vital role in the web of life and depend on quality habitat along and at both ends of their migration to thrive. There are 55 species of birds that spend their summer months breeding in the valley and wintering in Costa Rica. Of the 55 species, 19 are considered conservation priorities.

This program is presented in partnership with the St. Croix Valley Chapter of the American Association of University Women (AAUW).

Program is via Zoom. Registration is required. An email will be sent after registration with the Zoom meeting details.

When the dangerously handsome Johnny Blood’s life is on the line, he must put his fate into the hands of a colorful cast of characters including a mysterious sheriff, an eccentric priest, a narcissistic governor, a saloon girl gone good, and a nun out of the habit. Together, they face uncharted territory as laws are broken and hearts are won. Before the sun sets, will they be able to rise up and pull off the greatest act yet, or will Johnny be left hanging?

This witty and wild new musical comedy takes the Bard's Measure for Measure and shakes things up with a toe tappin' score by award-winning composer David Friedman. Featuring fresh and feisty book and lyrics by two-time Tony nominee Peter Kellogg, Desperate Measures is fully loaded with laughs. Saddle up and see why audiences and critics alike have branded Desperate Measures a grade ‘A’ musical!

Many of the birds that visit our yards during the summer lead a fascinating double life. These birds make an amazing journey between summer in Minnesota and winter in Costa Rica and Central America. Patty Mueller, Board President of Tropical Wings, will speak about these tiny, brave travelers and local efforts to support migratory bird education and habitat conservation. Tropical Wings is a locally founded non-profit organization that has formed partnerships with parks and reserves in Costa Rica to promote the quality habitat of our shared migratory birds, including exchanges with park professionals from both countries. As a shared resource, these birds play a vital role in the web of life and depend on quality habitat along and at both ends of their migration to thrive. There are 55 species of birds that spend their summer months breeding in the valley and wintering in Costa Rica. Of the 55 species, 19 are considered conservation priorities.

This program is presented in partnership with the St. Croix Valley Chapter of the American Association of University Women (AAUW).

Program is via Zoom. Registration is required. An email will be sent after registration with the Zoom meeting details.

Opening in March is the Midwest premiere of Desperate Measures, winner of the BEST MUSICAL! 2018 OUTER CRITICS CIRCLE & OBA AWARDS and BEST MUSIC & LYRICS! 2018 DRAMA DESK AWARDS!!

When the dangerously handsome Johnny Blood’s life is on the line, he must put his fate into the hands of a colorful cast of characters including a mysterious sheriff, an eccentric priest, a narcissistic governor, a saloon girl gone good, and a nun out of the habit. Together, they face uncharted territory as laws are broken and hearts are won. Before the sun sets, will they be able to rise up and pull off the greatest act yet, or will Johnny be left hanging?

This witty and wild new musical comedy takes the Bard's Measure for Measure and shakes things up with a toe tappin' score by award-winning composer David Friedman. Featuring fresh and feisty book and lyrics by two-time Tony nominee Peter Kellogg, Desperate Measures is fully loaded with laughs. Saddle up and see why audiences and critics alike have branded Desperate Measures a grade ‘A’ musical!
