Pollinator Pop Up
Celebrate Earth Day
On Friday, April 20 from 5:00-7:30pm, the ERC and the Sun Valley Center for the Arts will be hosting a Pollinator Pop Up in celebration of Earth Day!
At our office (471 Washington Ave, Ketchum), the ERC and Webb Landscape will host a variety of hands-on projects that promote healthy pollinator populations. 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 proceeds from cocktail sales will be donated back to the ERC and The Center. Two doors down (191 5th St, Ketchum), The Center will be open, displaying its 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.
