‘College for Kids’ offered in Hailey

Learn about ‘Ants and Plants’


By TONY EVANS

    The College of Southern Idaho’s Community Campus location in Hailey gets taken over by kids each summer in “College for Kids” programs.
    This summer’s “Ants and Plants” program will take kids on field trips with noted local naturalist Ann Christensen. In the process, they will get dirty in the search for fascinating bugs and plants.
    The four field trips will explore various natural communities and the creatures that inhabit them. As they visit rivers, forests, ponds, meadows, and sagebrush areas throughout the Wood River Valley, they will learn about botany, geology, ecology and more.
    Each child should bring a sack lunch and appropriate outdoor gear each day. This class is designed for students entering second to sixth grades.
    Field trips take place Monday through Thursday, June 24-27, from noon to 3 p.m. Children will meet at Hemingway Elementary School at 111 Eighth St. West in Ketchum. Tuition is $75.
    For more information, call Hillary Elmore at CSI, 788-2033.
