Blaine County, Idaho – Join the Wood River Land Trust, Idaho Chapter of The Nature Conservancy, and University of Idaho for a community conversation with Dennis Becker, Dean of the College of Natural Resources. Dennis will share his expertise on how the Wood River Valley community can mitigate and respond to wildland fires with cross-sector solutions. Scott Boettger, President of the Wood River Land Trust says, “In 2013, when the Beaver Creek fire burned 114,000 acres in our backyard, only one structure was lost. Credit is due to our local firefighters, as well as our local zoning codes— restricting development on hillsides and up remote drainages better prepared us to fight the fire.” In light of Dennis’ research and Blaine County’s wildfire history, Planning Director Cece Osborn at the Wood River Land Trust will discuss the interface between our built environment, community efforts, and surrounding open spaces. Tess O’Sullivan, The Nature Conservancy’s Land Conservation Strategy Lead, will share information about the Conservancy’s statewide approach to building resilient forests that includes the use of prescribed fire. Solutions to wildfires are multi-faceted, reliant on regional coordination, and key to preserving our community’s natural resources. Join us in a community conversation at Ketchum …

Ski lore is riddled with stories, sometimes of unknown origin, describing plausible but extraordinary past events.

For 28 years Teton Gravity Research has been traveling the globe with the best athletes to the most incredible locations often based on this fabled history to uncover the experience…and sometimes creating legends of our own along the way.

In this three-hour workshop we will take a close look and deep dive into a handful of Ernest Hemingway’s short stories and personal essays both as readers and as writers. We will examine Hemingway’s literary techniques in these short form pieces in terms of style, mood, voice, character development, scene setting, use of dialogue, and the works’ overall artful impact. We will also use these Hemingway pieces as inspirational models for creating the beginnings of our own new works of fiction and nonfiction during the workshop. Registration required. Limited to 15 attendees. This workshop will be held outdoors, weather permitting. Christian Winn is The Community Library’s Writer-In-Residence at the historic Ernest and Mary Hemingway House. He was Idaho’s 2016-2019 Writer in Residence.
