  • Mushing through the snow
    When a last blast of winter walloped Sisters with over 30 inches of snow in some areas last week, it made for treacherous driving conditions, and had some folks homebound. Snow may be beautiful to look at, but it can certainly make a mess out of traveling back and forth to work.
  • Firefighters honored for service
    Last Sunday, Sisters resident Leith Easterling called paramedics to check on her elderly mother, who was experiencing shoulder and back pain and feared she might be having a heart attack.

The Human Age, or Anthropocene, is a new geologic era proposed by scientists to describe our modern world that is dominated by humans and their changes to our planet. Join Deschutes Land Trust and retired National Geographic picture editor and the environment editor, Dennis Dimick, for a fast-moving, visual journey that explores and explains the modern human era, the Anthropocene. As a native Oregonian, Dimick will present a vivid journey through our modern world of 7.5 billion people that considers our expanding footprint, rising prosperity, and resulting environmental challenges that call for our attention and response. Explore ways to appreciate our place in nature and contemplate how we can contribute towards a positive future for ourselves and the planet.

Start Time: 10:00 AM
Join us for our spring Tiny Explorers series in Bend. Tiny Explorers encourages new parents to kickstart a healthy life enjoying the outdoors by getting their little ones in nature starting at a young age. The program is targeted at new families with infants and toddlers, from birth to 3 years old. Each week has a different theme and we’ll explore the outdoors, incorporating activities as we go. Parents will also learn safety tips for bringing little ones outdoors and more ideas for getting your family outside. Families with newborns to 3 year olds are welcome, and older siblings are invited to attend. Activities will encourage exploration of the natural world, connecting with our senses, and play. The activities can be adapted for your child’s age and development, and we’ll provide a space for families to network with each other.Families with newborns or infants that aren’t mobile should bring a baby carrier and blanket. Families that qualify for the Oregon Health Plan can access free baby carriers and other outdoor gear, including a sunhat and sunscreen. Questions? Contact Katie Chipko at katie@childrensforestco.org or (541) 383-5592.To stay up to date on Tiny Explorers events, opt-in to receive text message updates by texting tinyexplrs to 77948.
