The ROOSEVELTS MEET DING DARLING AT THE AMANA PERFORMING ARTS CENTER

September 14 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Join us for an evening with American Legends.
In this TWO ACT EVENT, you will hear the stories behind these two characters’ lives that forged the path to change, thus making history.
Act 1: CARTOONS & CONSERVATION: A Visit with Ding Darling
This one act play was premiered at the 2016 Iowa State Fair and has been in great demand ever since!
In this hour-long presentation, Jay N. “Ding” Darling visits with the audience in his 11th floor office at The Des Moines Register. Beginning with his early years in Sioux City, where he became aware of the natural world around him, as well as his developing skills as an editorial cartoonist, he reflects upon his remarkable life journey. His story continues to include 2 Pulitzer Prize winning editorial cartoons for The Register, and a remarkable career as a nationally known conservationist. From the introduction of The Duck Stamp to the creation of the National Wildlife Federation, Darling’s influence was felt, not only through his cartoons, but through his actions as well. Considered by many to be one of the most influential members of the modern conservation movement in the first half of the 20th century, the impact of his work is still felt today.
Act 2:
ROOSEVELT TAKES ON National Parks, Conservation, & Preservation
Theodore Roosevelt describes how he felt about conservation and preservation throughout his life, how his family felt about it, and how he saved more than 200 million acres of land for future generations to enjoy.
And YES! These two legends will cross paths and “meet” discussing the importance of conservation.
