Still honing her craft, this young singer and musician performs originals and covers for anyone that will listen and hopes to continue to grow and develop musically as a ninth grader at the St. Paul Conservatory for Performing Artists.

The Prescott Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Dinner is this Wednesday, Feb. 6 at the Old Ptacek’s Event Center beginning at 5:30 p.m.
Bring the whole family to this free program to meet live raptor ambassadors from the Raptor Center of Minnesota of the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities on Feb. 9 from 11 a.m. until noon at the Great River Road Visitors and Learning Center at Freedom Park in Prescott.
The program explores the different raptors found in the Midwest and their role in the environment. Participants learn the three key features of all raptors and learn why they are different from other birds. We discuss the positive and negative impact humans have on our environment, and participants are inspired by some of our greatest environmental success stories, such as the peregrine falcon and the bald eagle. Finally, we will learn about The Raptor Center and its important role in protecting raptors and the world we share. Everyone leaves feeling inspired and empowered, having learned specific things they can do to help protect raptors and the environment.
Enjoy an evening of great music as Garret comes back to entertain us!
Itchin’ to get your hands in the dirt? Come to the Visitor Center to help us plant native seeds into milk jug containers! Adopt some of the jugs; make some for us to keep here, too. When these seeds germinate and sprout in the spring, we will plant them into our native gardens and bluff prairie. We will provide all materials.
Be a part of our continued restoration efforts to preserve Freedom Park’s globally-rare bluff prairie!
Join us for a great night of music from Rob Olson this Saturday at Lucille’s of Prescott beginning at 8 8 p.m.
