ERC offers variety of events


Each season the Environmental Resource Center offers a variety of weekly events that take in the environment, animalia and activities.

On Saturday, Feb. 3, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. strap on some snowshoes and join the ERC's Animal Tracking Workshops. In previous workshops participants have spotted marten, ermine, fox, coyote, mice, shrew, snowshoe hare and elk tracks. The workshops are also scheduled each Saturday in February.

Participants meet at the ERC office at 471 N. Washington Ave. in Ketchum and, after a brief orientation, car pool to a designated area. Bring snowshoes, poles, a water bottle and lunch.

Ever dream of living like an Eskimo, curled up in an icy igloo with bear rugs for comfort? Join the ERC's Snow Cave Workshop, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 4, to learn how to build a snow cave with ERC Director Craig Barry.

Meet at the ERC at 10 a.m. prepared for a day outside with a shovel, snowshoes, lunch, water, warm snow gear and something insulated to sit on. The Snow Cave Workshop is free to ERC Members. A donation is requested ($15) for non-members and ($25) for families of three or more.

The Northwest Earth Institute Discussion Course: Choices for Sustainable Living meets 7 to 8 p.m. Tuesdays at Tully's coffee house in Ketchum. This ERC-sponsored course will explore how each of us makes choices that have an impact on the earth. We can choose options that are more sustainable than others. Participants consider steps toward ecologically sustainable lifestyles, communities and organizations.

In Hailey, the course will meet 10 to 11 a.m. Saturday, beginning Feb. 10, at Zaney's Coffee House, on River Street every Saturday.
