    In this Earth Day workshop participants will examine how personal lifestyle choices and societal services affect global resource use.  After Calculating our "ecological footprints" using the Global Footprint Network model, we will explore strategies for personally reducing waste at home, increasing the sustainability of our purchasing habits, and rethinking the way we look at resource use.  We can all take steps towards the same goal:  reduce, reuse, recycle, and rethink.

    Others can assist us, but we must find the path to self-knowledge ourselves, with art, poetry, memoir, music and nature as our guides.  In this discussion/workshop, we will look at the way Harjo weaves dreams, poems, and visions from her American Indian past into a narrative that reveals both the incredible sadness and the powerful beauty of her life.  After discussing what makes Harjo's poetry as well as her memoir so remarkable, participants will free-write on a childhood memory and then will experiment with adding poetry, dreams, song lyrics, etc. in order to enrich their memoir.  Sponsored by Coles County Arts Council.

    Instructors:  Charlotte England, PhD & Daiva Markelis, PhD

    The Old York Trail was probably a buffalo trail first, then definitely a Native American Trail, then a pioneer trail bringing settlers to Central Illinois.  Later the trail was used to transport farm produce to the Wabash River for transport to be sold as well as purchasing supplies from the thriving city of York on the Wabash River.  The stories that are being collected are an amazing historical account of our ancestors and early pioneers who were instrumental in making central Illinois a home for their descendants and those who came after them.

    Instructor:  Carolyn Stephens

    Stephens was awarded the Illinois Community College Faculty Assoc. Dr. Joseph T. Cipfl Faculty Research/Workshop Grant to study this historic trail of which the Lincoln Family traveled in part when migrating from Indiana to Illinois.
