Bookstorm™: Creekfinding

Creekfinding Bookstorm

CreekfindingWe were very excit­ed to read Creek­find­ing: a True Sto­ry because it tells the sto­ry of restor­ing a long-ago creek in an Iowa prairie set­ting. Just imag­ine: bring­ing back the bur­bling waters, the fish, the insects, the grass­es … every­thing that makes up the health and char­ac­ter of the land. It took bull­doz­ers and deter­mi­na­tion, part­ners and imag­i­na­tion, but it was a project that brought eco­log­i­cal success!

Our Book­storm will take you into fur­ther explo­ration, study­ing ecosys­tems, water con­ser­va­tion, com­mu­ni­ty action, fish, and more.

We trust you will find inspi­ra­tion and resources aplen­ty with­in the Book­storm to accom­pa­ny your study of Creek­find­ing: a True Sto­ry. We know you’ll share our appre­ci­a­tion for Dr. Michael Oster­holm, who con­ceived of the project, Jacque­line Brig­gs Mar­tin, the author, Clau­dia McGe­hee, the illus­tra­tor, and the Uni­ver­si­ty of Min­neso­ta Press, which under­stood how much read­ers and inno­v­a­tive thinkers need this book.
