Claudia and Myrna have been busy filling book orders - books sales spiked after Brian Keating's CBC interview!
Our Homestretch naturalist Brian Keating is back with a book that he thinks we should all be reading, or perhaps be giving as a Christmas gift.
Listen to this episode on CBC radio show here.
Red Deer Advocate wrote a nice front page article on Myrna.

A big thank you to all who came out yesterday to support my book launch! Over 60 people attended and Kerry Wood Nature Centre sold a record number of books!
I was very pleased that Fred Schutz could attend. Fred has been a life-long friend and mentor who instilled in me my great love of nature. The book is dedicated to him. Fred also has a new book out - at age 96! He is shown here signing one of his previous books for Jim Potter. The Beauty Everywhere cover photograph is of a Saw-whet Owl taken on Jim and Bonnie's beautiful property near Delburne. Many other pictures in the book were also taken at "Potter's Paradise." I am truly grateful to everyone who helped make this book possible!
