Susan E. Fowler is a storytelling artist & scientist who weaves together drama, music, sign language and sketches to share about the Earth!

Each program is customized and topics cover natural and cultural history from Lewis & Clark to Lincoln; water cycle & wetlands; and steamboats & barges on the river!

The programs are interactive – stories come alive as participants become the characters, the landscape and sometimes a vocabulary word!

A journal page of events, called “memory sketches”, are available as a keepsake of the sharing. Each sharing hopes to celebrate diversity, culture, beauty and harmony.
