art, honors college, westminster faculty
This February, Westminster's Student Honors Council invited Hikmet Loe and Russ Costa to lead a discussion around issues of nature and mental health. They called the discussion "Embodied Landscapes, Embodied Minds, and Restorative Nature" and asked Hikmet and Russ to talk about their experiences in nature and links to mental health. You can view the images discussed in this episode on the Mountain Stories Podcast website. And, in classic Honors college fashion, Russ and Hikmet grounded this concept in texts, art and photography from around the world.

collaborative summer research grants, great salt lake institute
We continue our series of stories about the Great Salt Lake today with 2 stories about Pelicans, a piece of new music, and a report from a couple of our summer collaborative research grants. First, Kara Kornhauser discusses her research related to pelicans and tar seeps near the Spiral Jetty on the shores of the lake. Next, I interview Connor Lockie about his new piece of music, "Mass for Pelicans," and we'll share that composition. Finally, Hikmet Loe and Scout Enviros talk about the work they did this summer as part of their summer collaborative research project, "The Necessity of Landscape."
