Program Description

Event Details

Take a closer look at a bird not everyone knows very well and how we are making Des Moines a better place for the bluebird to live. We’ll look at history, actions taken, and what we are doing to help Bluebirds in Des Moines. Joel Van Roekel, Supervisor of Environmental Education for Des Moines Parks and Recreation, is the presenter.

Joel works within the Des Moines Parks and Recreation department providing activities based on nature, conservation, and education.  He helps people make a connection the to nature in our Des Moines Parks and in their own backyard. Joel uses art, technology, science, curiosity and any other medium to educate and help make people aware of their environment and the cool things that live there.
