Hit the Habitat Trail

Co-created by Rik and Debbie Sargent. They created the questions, board, games rules and cards. Sculptor, Rik Sargent carved and created the unique “critters” that are used to travel the board. This game is published by JAX Games.

From the JAX website:
“Learn about animals and their environments as you follow the stone trail through the world’s habitats. Draw a “Wisdom & Consequence” card to learn about environmental hazards and to discover ways in which you can help improve the environment. With every correct answer to an animal or habitat question on the “Knowledge” cards, you collect one “Habitat” card. Collect two cards from each habitat to become an “Earth Steward” and win the game. It’s a fun expedition around the world for family and friends when you “HIT THE HABITAT TRAIL!”

Year of Sunday

Bronze sculpture of the history of Littleton Colorado to celebrate the centennial year of Littleton.  Dedicated December 1, 1990
Located Junction of Main Street & Alamo Avenue, east side of railroad tracks Littleton Colorado

A family unit is representing four consecutive eras. The mother, dressed in 1890s costume, sits in a chair reading to her daughter who sits on her lap. Her daughter, dressed in the clothes of about 1910, holds a doll. On the side, to the mother’s proper left, is a wheat field scene, with a farmer and horse-drawn plough, and a small scale model of Richard Little’s flour mill. A father and son stand behind the mother and daughter, looking outward in the opposite direction. The father, dressed in overalls, represents the 1950s. He stands, pointing outward with his proper left hand, with his proper right hand on his son’s shoulder. The boy, standing to the father’s proper right, is clad in 1990s clothes, including tennis shoes and headphones. The boy holds a model jet airplane in his hands. In front of them is a small building; and behind the father, on the proper left side, is a replica of the Gemini space vehicle, and spectators. The figures stand on a base of swirling planets and molecules  (taken from the Smithsonian Institute website http://collections.si.edu/search/results.htm?q=record_ID:siris_ari_332241)

Free Mind

Free Mind – Bronze sculpture placed at the Nelson and Sue Andrews Institute for Civic Leadership in Nashville TN.  “Civic leadership is, at its core, local, and while it is housed on the campus of Lipscomb University, the institute has a broader community reach. Through its “Leading Voices” website (leadingvoices.lipscomb.edu), local, national and international leaders and scholars participate in conversation to find and replicate common-good solutions to community building. Timely questions on current challenges and opportunities encourage lively community dialogue and online collaboration.” ( from the website – http://www.lipscomb.edu/civicleadership)
