This Saturday, October 14th, acclaimed writer and teacher Jack Nisbet will be giving a presentation at St Stephens Episcopal Church (5720 S Perry St) that investigates the human and natural history of the bluff through time. Jack will focus on the geologic upheavals that formed the area, the fish that sustained people for millennia, the moment when Canadian fur traders arrived, and the impact of the last two centuries on the drainage itself. After the presentation, Jack will lead a small group on a hike to experience his talking points firsthand.
The presentation will take place in St Stephens' Parish Hall, which has plenty of room so RSVP is not required. However, space in the post-lecture hike is limited, so anyone who's interested should contact Sam at St Stephens at 509-448-2255 to reserve their spot.
Doors will open at 9:30 AM and the presentation will begin at 10. Please park in the upper lot. There are two entrances into the lot, one on 57th and one on Perry St. Enter the Parish Hall through the red doors.
