Birding Walk
Saturday, June 18 Ryan Anderson of Hailey, Idaho will lead a birding walk. Meet at the library at 9:00 am. Wear good walking shoes and bring binoculars if possible. "Having grown up in Idaho I have naturally been drawn to the beauty of the land. I have lived in the Wood River Valley for about 3 years now with my beautiful wife, two children and my birding canine companion Ruby. I work in Sun Valley as Postmaster for the USPS. That being my vice, birding is my surely my virtue. I have been birding now for about 5 years and love to share my love and passion of this quickly growing hobby. I invite you to join me Saturday June 18 for a Stanley birding adventure. We will discuss the basics of birding, etiquette, and local birds native and migratory to the area. I look forward to seeing you there. Happy Birding!"
Book Signing
Mark William Lisk and Nicole LeFavour will hold a reading and signing of their new book Sawtooth White Cloud, Friday, June 24, at 7:00 pm. "Mark Lisk's powerful photos expose a striking side of the lakes and rocky heights of a remote slice of the American wild. Deep in Idaho's newly designated White Cloud Wilderness Area and the dramatic peaks of the Sawtooth Wilderness, together Lisk and writer Nicole LeFavour bring to life the light and stark beauty of the silence and stillness of these high places perched far from where most will ever travel." Books will be available for sale.
