The Geo is more than just a visitor center. As a multi-discipline education center, we reward the curious!
We listened to you, and have implemented an impressive slate of programs for locals over the past few years:
· Last fall, fifty high school students hit the Geo with shopping lists of things to learn, then research.
· In our new Idea Gallery, we hosted the Fine Artists exhibit, from September ’18 through January ‘19, with more than 100 people attending the opening. In February ‘19, sixty-plus local artists and art lovers got together to celebrate “Wild: Fresh Art in the Tetons,” which will run through September ‘19.
· Fifty local Idaho public TV patrons gathered for the premier of Outdoor Idaho’s “Hops and Barley.”
· Scores of Rotary and Chamber members enjoyed receptions and talk of service and job creation.
· Our small friends, Rowdy, Myles and others, come regularly and visit us in the Bat Cave (our office and workroom).
The Geo provides rich and growing opportunities for citizens and community groups throughout the valley. We believe this work is worthy of your support through this year’s Tin Cup Challenge.
The Geo fosters a deep appreciation for Teton Valley by encouraging guests and locals to:
· Protect and preserve its farms, forests, rivers, wetlands, and charismatic megafauna (moose, elk, bear, etc.).
· Engage in the area’s history, culture, cuisine, and outdoor adventures.
· Minimize their impact on their surroundings (take only pictures; leave only appreciation), and contribute to the community (patronizing local businesses, e.g.)
· Enjoy and participate in year-‘round offerings on City Plaza, such as the Farmers’ Market, Plein Air, Symphony on Sunday, the Crane Festival, and Snowscapes.
The 2019 Tin Cup Challenge donation period runs through July 26 at 5:00 p.m. Please pick up a donation form at the Geo or donate on line. And please, do come in for a visit!
