KIRKWOOD, MO. — The Missouri Department of Conservation’s (MDC) Powder Valley Conservation Nature Center will host the Missouri Waters multimedia program featuring the Two Bobs Friday, April 5 at 7 p.m. The program is free and open to anyone age 12 and up.

It will be an evening of music, song, photographs, and thoughts on the beauty, health, and future of Missouri’s streams and rivers. The presentation is performed by the duo of Bob Ranney and Bob Korpella, both members of the Springfield Plateau Chapter of the Missouri Master Naturalists.

The Two Bob’s bringing together their diverse talents in one performance is truly a case of the whole being greater than the sum of the parts.

Ranney, a musician with a life-long passion for environmental quality, will perform music he has composed while spending years on our rivers. He’ll also share his insights about both the past and future of Missouri’s waterways.

Korpella is a chronicler of environmental issues as a photographer and freelance writer. He will present slides of his nature photography as well as experience and insight he’s gained on water quality from monitoring Missouri’s streams.

The duo will also bring real specimens of aquatic larvae and nymphs to give visitors a closeup look at these tiny creatures, which play a big role in the health of streams and revealing water quality.

Missouri Waters, a unique, educational, and entertaining multimedia experience, proves that two Bobs are even better than one.
