Richard “Nels” Nelson meant so many things to so many people, and was influential on air, in our community, and big voice for the wonderful world of nature that we live in and around. We hope that you enjoyed the encore episodes of Encounters aired in the final months of 2019 and thank you to everyone that contributed their fond memories of Nels.
