Shrub steppe beers

Wednesday, May 8th - A Methow GenNxt Event- Beers of the Shrub-Steppe
6pm – 8:30pm, Free. @ TBD

During this GenNxt gathering we will be exploring the relationship between hiking in shrub-steppe and the beers that make it better. Whether it’s the similarities in flavor, aroma, essence, or just the thoughts they can both inspire, they undoubtedly have a bond. And we intend to explore it!! “Methow GenNxt” is the Methow Conservancy’s effort to engage, learn from and support the “next generation” of young adult leaders (early 20s to early 40s). Registration is necessary, as space is limited, and you must be 21 to participate. Contact us at 996-2870 or email us to reserve your spot.

Friday, May 17th - A May Special Presentation –The One-of-a-Kind Bird Life of Trinidad and Tobago

May is not usually when Methow Valley residents dream of heading south to a tropical island. So, instead, the tropical island and its residents will be coming to the Methow! Martyn Kenefick is a world renowned ornithologist who has spent the last 15 years leading tours and studying the bird lie of Trinidad and Tobago. He will be sharing a glimpse of this incredible world and other wonders from the Atlantic coast of South America! Photo: purple honeycreeper by Noel Snyder
