On Nov. 12 at Rotacrest Hall, retired ski guide Bernard Faure will present “Glaciers of the Rockies.” Faure has been working for Athabasca Glacier Icewalks for the past nine summers, leading walks on the glacier. He claims only to be someone who has learned about glaciers from peers, scientists, books and clients, and would like to share what he has learned. The presentation begins at 7 p.m.; tickets are $8 at the door.

Local Colours‘ continues in its third year as Wildsight hosts six local photographers and a moviemaker at the Tivoli Theatre on Dec. 2. This year’s list of fabulous photographers are Monte Comeau from Salmo, Miriam Needoba from Nelson, Jim Lawrence from the Lardeau Valley, and Creston photographers Jim and Howard Smith, Ralph Moore and Bernd Stengl. The show begins at 7:30 p.m.; tickets are $10 at the door.

Plans are in flight for the 2014 Creston Valley Bird Fest, scheduled for May 9-11. The bird fest committee would like to remind artists about the festival art competition. The committee wishes to purchase a piece of art for the poster that will be distributed Kootenay-wide and for the cover of the festival program. The committee is also looking for bird experts to lead birding tours throughout the valley. Artists and bird biologists are invited to email info@crestonvalleybirds.ca for more information or queries.
