Valley Creek Preserve Meeting

6-8PM / Community Center / Stanley

Valley Creek Preserve MeetingThe public is invited to attend the next meeting of the Valley Creek Preserve Community Planning Process on Thursday, Sept. 22 from 6-8 p.m. at the Community Center in Stanley. The Valley Creek Preserve was established by the Wood River Land Trust in 2015 to protect salmon habitat, wetlands and the scenic views of the stunning Sawtooth Valley. Since then, the WRLT has been working with the U.S. Forest Service, Idaho Department of Fish and Game, Idaho Governor’s Office of Species Conservation and the City of Stanley to come up with plans and goals for best managing the preserve.

“The Land Trust is excited to work with the community of Stanley to develop a management plan that protects the fish and wildlife habitat of Valley Creek and also creates an asset for the entire community and its visitors,” said Keri York, WRLT director of conservation.

The Valley Creek Preserve covers 34 acres along the northern edge of the Stanley community. It includes wet meadows and a one-mile stretch of Valley Creek. Historically, the creek and its tributaries have been home to a variety of native fish species like steelhead, bull and westslope cutthroat trout, and sockeye and Chinook salmon. Chinook and other species still spawn in Valley Creek, making the small mountain stream critical habitat.

Conversation moderator Franklin is the host and producer of “Dialogue,” a discussion program on Idaho Public Television. Franklin’s programs have won numerous awards, including a George Foster Peabody Award, an ABA Silver Gavel Award and several regional Emmy awards.

“Miranda July is a unique addition to our annual Lecture Series and the roster of previous authors, thought leaders and artists,” said Katelyn Foley, The Center’s director of education and humanities. “Working in a variety of media, she is smart, intuitive and original.

Film Noir Series

7PM / Magic Lantern Cinemas / Ketchum

Film Noir SeriesThe third annual Sun Valley Film Noir Series is back and will continue its Thursday evening film screenings on Sept. 22 and 29. The noir classics will all be shown at 7 p.m. at the Magic Lantern Cinemas in Ketchum. Once again, Greg Olson, film director at the Seattle Art Museum, selected the theme for the 2016 film series, “Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye.”

“The past is haunted,” Olson said. “It’s over. Live now. Live fast. Grab all the money you can, the dames, the booze, the big prize. Laws, rules, limits – who cares? But if you’re just living for today, you might have to kiss tomorrow goodbye.”

The 2016 Sun Valley Film Noir Series will continue this week with “The Killers” (1946), directed by Robert Siodmak and starring Burt Lancaster, Ava Gardner and Edmond O’Brien. This film is based on Ernest Hemingway’s story of the same title. Why does a big, strong guy (Burt Lancaster) not run from two men who want to kill him? The darkly alluring Kitty Collins (Ava Gardner) has a lot to answer for.

Tickets will be $10, available at the Magic Lantern Cinemas box office the day of each film. For details about this exciting annual film event visit or for any interest in becoming a supporter, email Jeannine Gregoire at
