The Community School's Trail Creek Institute is offering adult education classes beginning on Monday, April 12. The enrichment program will offer an assortment of classes to satisfy creative impulses, including photography and scrap-booking, or practical learning such as a guide to using a Mac computer or low-carbon-footprint gardening.

In addition, the Trail Creek Institute offers classes in culture, including film appreciation and memoir writing, as well as classes to learn about bicycle repair, women's self-defense and yoga.

This is the third session of classes the institute is offering, and this session will include six-week classes, single-evening workshops and weekend-long outdoor trips. Classes are held at The Community School's Trail Creek Campus in Sun Valley, as well as around the Wood River Valley. The institute offers a discount to seniors.
