Pollinator Pop Up and Earth Day at the ERC!

Posted on

Pollinator Pop Up

Join the ERC, Sun Valley Center for the Arts, and Roadbars for a Pollinator Pop Up celebrating Earth Day on Friday, April 20, from 5:00-7:30pm. Stop by and enjoy an evening full of fun, engaging activities that focus on the importance of pollinators and how you can protect them.

At our office (471 Washington Ave, Ketchum), the ERC will host a variety of hands-on projects that promote healthy pollinator populations and showcase our Pesticide Action program, which works to reduce the use of pesticides, herbicides, and chemical fertilizers in the Wood River Valley. Roadbars, a mobile specialty beverage bar, will be serving four delicious signature cocktails with pollinator-dependent ingredients, highlighting the vital role pollinators play in some of our favorite indulgences. A portion of the evening’s cocktail proceeds will be donated back to the ERC and The Center. Two doors down (191 5th St, Ketchum), The Center will display its newest BIG IDEA Project, “Bees.”

Grab a drink, move between the ERC and The Center, and become better informed stewards of our planet this Earth Day. All ages are welcome.
