Stargazing & Natural Night Skies

June 16, 5:30–6:30PM (MDT)

Stargazing is a fun, all-ages, and life-long activity, especially as we live in an especially spectacular natural dark skies location of the nation! In this 1-hour online presentation, Sammy will teach about the night sky, stargazing techniques, and specific constellations.

 

The event is free, but you must register to receive the Zoom link.

Annual Three Forks Trip

October 8–10

The Owyhee River was designated Wild & Scenic on October 19, 1984, and this trip is all about celebrating its protection! We'll hike around the confluence of the West Little Owyhee River and Antelope Creek as we explore the outstandingly remarkable value that a Wild & Scenic river has to offer. Enjoy learning about the ecology, geologic features, scenic beauty, and wildlife. This trip is self-supported car camping at Three Forks Campground.

Birding & Botany

A successful trip to North Fork for our first time going birding and studying botany. It was a chilly one, yes, but it was so worth it for the critters and incredible sights we saw.
