Lectures focus on Northwest nature

As part of an environmental education program, the Snoqualmie Foothills Branch of the Mountaineers will be offering two different lecture series during January through March of 2006.

The first workshop, titled "Wildlife," will explore the world of bears, salmon, mountain lion, orca, elk/deer and the Interstate 90 wildlife corridor. The second workshop, titled "Earth," will dig into a variety of topics such as flora and fauna of the Pacific Northwest, local forests, land management, land restoration/conservation, soils/composting, organic gardening, the Taylor Mountain Forest and the Hazel Wolf Wetlands.

So, while the days are short, liven up the evenings listening to seasoned professionals, scientists and experts in their field share their knowledge and passion for the natural world. Each series will cost $30 per person, or $12 per session or $100 for the session for a family of four. Seminars for each series will take place once a month in the Issaquah area on a weekday evening from 6:30-9 p.m. (two speakers/topics per evening). Those who want to be notified as dates and locations are set or to find out how to register are asked to e-mail snoqualmiefoothills@yahoo.com and enter "Lecture Series" in the subject line, or check for updates at www.sfbmountaineers.org.
