Tuesday, November 22, 2022 - Roughly 20% of American children live with at least one adult facing addiction. The Point of Contact Foundation was formed to help school counseling programs address students in crisis and trauma. We visit with North Dakota native Ken Maher, the founder and executive director of the foundation, who tells us about a training available in conjunction with the Hazelden Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage California. ~~~ Audubon Dakota is merging with other states to become Audubon Great Plains. We visit with the new executive director Kristal Stoner. ~~~ Speaking of birds, we share a BirdNote on preserving the Palouse prairie.
