Thriving in the Midst of Change - 3 session series

Get more info about this event »

Description: Change is the only “constant in life” and we don’t always get to choose how it comes about. Sometimes it’s easy, other times it pushes us beyond our comfort zone, and then there are those occasions when every step seems so damn hard! Whether it’s a move, divorce, season of the year, unexpected medical diagnosis, child leaving the nest, new job (or job loss), the next stage of life, death of a loved one … change is inevitable. Yet all of these circumstances offer an incredible opportunity to gently let go of the old and powerfully embrace the new. It’s not about just surviving - but thriving in the midst of change. In this three (3) session series you’ll learn simple yet effective strategies to empower you to: Identify your feelings around a specific life change and what you may be resisting Embrace the lessons and blessings hidden within any change or circumstance Tap into the positive energy within the things you can control Step out into the world in a greater way that supports healthy ways to weather both the steady and unbalanced rhythms and cycles of life Class Fee: $75 Class Dates: March Session Class 1 of 3 March 2 @ 7pm CST Class 2 of 3 March 9 @ 7pm CST Class 3 of 3 March 16 @ 7pm CST Materials Needed: Blank paper and a pen for taking notes. Approximately 10-15 3”X5” or larger notecards, and scotch or masking tape or safety pins, to use for one of our interactive activities.

Ecosystems of Kansas - Ecosistemas de Kansas
Ecosystems of Kansas - Ecosistemas de Kansas

Get more info about this event »

Description: We will explore the ecosystems of Kansas from long ago and how they changed over time. 80 million years ago Kansas was part of an inland sea, we will see the organisms that lived in that sea and their relationships to each other. We will consider the different ecosystems of Kansas from 190,000 thousand years ago to 11,900 years ago when Kansas was much cooler and covered in tundra for a time and Spruce Forests for a time and then eventually transitioned to the grasslands we find in Kansas today. We will see how some animals adapt to the changes in their environment, how some are able to move when climate changes and how others go extinct. We will explore natural selection to demonstrate how organisms can change over time. The videos debut Thursday, March 4 at 10am CST on our Facebook page & will later be available on the KU Biological Survey’s YouTube channel. Meeting NGSS standards: 3-LS4-1, LS2.C, LS2.D, LS4.A, 3-LS4-1, 3-LS4-3 Note: All episodes will premiere with the Spanish-language version (10 am), followed by the English-language version. This broader impacts project is led by Dr. Peggy Schultz, KU Environmental Studies Program Associate Specialist, and her team. (Grant: Kansas NSF EPSCoR RII Track-1 Award OIA-1656006.) ------- Exploraremos cómo eran los ecosistemas de Kansas hace mucho tiempo atrás y cómo cambiaron con el tiempo. Hace 80 millones de años, Kansas era parte de un mar interior, veremos los organismos que vivían en ese mar y sus relaciones entre sí. Consideraremos los diferentes ecosistemas de Kansas desde hace 190.000 mil años hasta hace 11.900 años, cuando Kansas era mucho más frío y estaba cubierto de tundra, luego de bosques de abetos y finalmente hizo la transición a los pastizales que encontramos en Kansas hoy. Veremos cómo algunos animales se adaptan a los cambios en su entorno, cómo algunos son capaces de moverse cuando cambia el clima y cómo otros se extinguen. Exploraremos la selección natural para demostrar cómo los organismos pueden cambiar con el tiempo. El video se estrenará el jueves 4 de marzo a las 10 am CST en nuestra página de Facebook y también estarán disponibles en el canal de YouTube de KU Biological Survey. Cumpliendo con los estándares NGSS: 3-LS4-1, LS2.C, LS2.D, LS4.A, 3-LS4-1, 3-LS4-3 Nota: Todos los episodios se estrenarán en su versión en español (10 am), seguidos de su versión en inglés. Este proyecto de amplio impacto está dirigido por la Dra. Peggy Schultz, especialista asociada del Programa de Estudios Ambientales de la Universidad de Kansas, y su equipo.
