Name: NIU Lifelong Learning Institute: The Good Natured Hour
Date: January 19, 2021 - February 8, 2021
Bring your questions and observations about nature and be prepared for some good-natured fun while learning about our local wildlife in the LLI class. Convener Pam Otto may be familiar to you from her Good Natured newspaper column in Shaw Media publications and her The Good Natured Hour videos, both of which delve into current happenings in our natural world. Convener: Pam Otto is a graduate of NIU’s outdoor education master’s degree program and has worked as a naturalist for the past 20 years at public agencies including the Forest Preserve District of Kane County and the Fox Valley Park District. She has been with the St. Charles Park District since 2007. Prior to engineering the career switch that led to her dream job, she worked in trade publishing but spent every spare moment catching bugs, watching birds and chasing snakes. The Northern Illinois University Lifelong Learning Institute (LLI), established in 2000, is a member-directed group of individuals primarily age 50 plus who enjoy learning in informal, flexible, non-competitive groups and like connecting with peers who share their interests. No grades, no tests – just Learning for the Fun of It.
