I wanted to briefly include a link to a naturalist who was an inspiration in my childhood, Rudy Mancke. His 30 min show Nature Scene was lovely and immersive walking and exploring different wild areas.
And want to highlight the 1:00 audio clip of Rudy Mancke reading Walt Whitman’s “The learned Astronomer,”
This sums my Mother up perfectly! Understanding that she was on the side of Mancke and Whitman…in her approach to teaching. (Astronomy)
