Jun 16 - Sep 8 Yarn Bombing Exhibit Opens at the Hockaday

About the Exhibit
Yarnbombing, also known as yarnstorming, guerrilla knitting, urban knitting or graffiti knitting, is a type of street art that uses yarn rather than paint.  Yarn may be knitted, crocheted, macraméd or even strung single-stranded.  The Hockaday Museum of Art is joining in this new expression of personal creativity by bringing it to the Flathead Valley.  Somers resident Jodie Coston has led the yarnbombing project with generous support by Camas Creek Yarn in Kalispell. 
 
The yarnbombing installation at the Museum involves decoration of as much of the outside of the Hockaday as possible, including trees, sign posts and light posts.  The project began with mostly blue and white colored wool yarn, but grew to incorporate everything from acrylic to silk in every color of the rainbow.  Machine-knit materials have been creatively incorporated with the addition of deconstructed donated sweaters that had been cut into squares.

Glacier’s Grizzlies
Saturday-Sunday: July 7-8, 2012
Instructor:  Ralph Waldt
 


This course will be an experience for you to remember.  We will be in the heart of grizzly country studying one of the world’s most magnificent animals.  The emphasis will be on bear biology, bear habitat, and bear/people conflicts. The following will give you an idea of what we’ll cover in class:
  • Glacier’s grizzlies relative to bears of the world
  • Grizzly biology, ecology, behavior, habitat
  • Grizzly mythology, cultural ties, politics
  • Grizzly management and research (local and global)
  • Bear/people concerns, problems, and interactions
 
Meeting Time:  Saturday July 7th at 8 AM
 
Meeting Place:  Glacier Park Field Camp Meeting Hall (see campus map)
 
Accommodations: Students who wish to stay in the Field Camp cabins can reserve a spot by calling the Glacier Institute at (406)755-1211 in advance. $30.00 per night per person. See Field Camp Description for facility information.
 
Food: Students are responsible for providing their own food.  Please bring a sack lunch, snacks and plenty of water for both days.  You are invited to bring food to contribute to a potluck dinner that we will prepare collectively in the kitchen on Saturday evening.  On Sunday evening we may decide to go out to dinner as a group on our way back to Field Camp.  Bring extra money just in case. For students staying overnight at camp, we have a kitchen in which you can cook meals and space available for food storage.
 
Equipment: Please see basic gear list. Binoculars for searching for bears from long distances are extremely helpful.
 
Physical Requirements: Moderate on- trail and off-trail hikes up to three miles and/ or 1,000 feet elevation gain at a leisurely pace.  Do come prepared to walk over rugged terrain and through dense brush. 
 
Transportation during course: We will be traveling in a Glacier Institute vehicle.  Due to the wide expanses of bear habitat in this ecosystem, we may be travelling long distances to view varying habitats.
 
Weather: This course will not be canceled due to inclement weather.
  
Recommended Reading:
Bear Attacks: Their Causes and Avoidance
Steve Herrero, Winchester Press, Piscatawy, NJ.
 
Tentative Itinerary:
Saturday: We will begin with a brief introduction accompanied by coffee or tea, followed by a discussion and stories about bears.  We will head out in the field to explore bear habitat and have our lunch out in the field.  We will return to Field Camp around 5 PM or 6 PM.  This general time has been famous for extending!  It’s hard to pull bear lovers off the hillside sometimes.  After dinner, several hours will be scheduled for discussion and viewing any of a broad range of videos.  The amount of time will depend on the energy level of the group. 
 
Sunday:  We will head straight into the field in the morning.  Field trips to view grizzly habitat may include the North Fork Valley and the Many Glacier Valley. Due to the rare and endangered status of grizzlies and the dense forest cover in Glacier, the opportunity of seeing a grizzly on these field trips is slight.  However, we will definitely find good examples of bear foods and signs of bear activity.  Nature provides boundless educational opportunities, some are expected but many are a surprise.  Our schedule will be flexible to make the most of these opportunities.  We will plan on returning to Field Camp by about 6 PM.
 
Academic Credit: This course may be taken for 18 Office of Public Instruction (OPI) renewal units (for teacher’s license renewal), or for Flathead Valley Community College credit (one credit- GLAC 191).  If you wish to take an Institute course for credit, you will be asked to fill out paperwork and pay a credit fee at the start of your course ($20 for OPI, $93 for FVCC credit) both payable to FVCC. 
Grade will be based on a short paper.  We will discuss possible topics during the course.  The instructor at the first meeting of the course will outline any additional credit requirements.  Credits are based on the semester system and may apply toward teacher re-certification in Montana.  Consult your school district and the Office of Public Instruction for verification.  FVCC policies regarding cancellations, withdrawals, refunds, tuition waivers, and discounts do not apply to Glacier Institute courses.  FVCC credits do not count for financial aid purposes.

Jul 8 - Jul 10 The Glacier Institute: Nature Photography in Glacier National Park

Nature Photography in Glacier Park
July 8 - 10, 2012
Instructor:  Rick Sheremeta, ME, P.E.                     

In this course, you will accompany the Instructor exploring Glacier National Park and capturing some of its unique grandeur via photography. You will learn how to develop your own creative vision through proper use of composition, working with natural and flash lighting, control of motion, use of perspective and depth-of-field, and other valuable skills all intended to help improve your photographic capabilities.  In the program, you will travel through the different ecosystems of the Park in a large van lead by a knowledgeable Institute staff member.  We will be on the constant lookout for wildlife and stop at sites that provide unique photographic subjects and challenges.  We will also get off the road and do some easy hiking.   We will discuss the ethics of wild land and wildlife photography striving to understand and minimize the impact of our photography.  Each day will be a full day in the field, regardless of weather.  Should time permit, we will also have classroom discussion and student critiques.  The days will be long, as we strive to capture the day’s most dramatic light: dawn and dusk with downtime or travel scheduled in between.  This program is open to all skill levels from beginner through advanced and all camera types – digital, film, point and shoot.
 
Prerequisites– knowledge of and familiarity with your camera equipment.  All cameras are different, therefore it is mandatory that you know how your camera functions and where all of its controls are located before participating in this program.

Jul 16 - Jul 17 The Glacier Institute: Northfork River Ecology by Raft
North Fork River Ecology by Raft
Sat/Sun: July 16-17, 2012
 

This course provides an opportunity to experience the pristine and wildlife-rich North Fork of the Flathead River.  Starting at the Canadian Border, we’ll float past the wild Kintla Valley, while learning about how the river functions naturally.  We’ll explore the river’s diversity of terrestrial and aquatic habitats and the bountiful plants and wildlife that they support. Management of the National Park and Forest as well as impacts including wildfire and human settlement will be discussed.  While we’re on the river, we’ll have several opportunities to examine, on foot, some of the interesting features of this river and its tributaries. The outdoor classroom will provide us with the chance to see the diversity of plants and animals along the river corridor, and to appreciate the linkages between the fishery and food web of Flathead Lake and that of the Flathead River.
 
Meeting Time:  8am, July 16th
 
Meeting Place:  Glacier Park Field Camp Meeting Hall (see campus map).
 
Accommodations:  During each course we will be sleeping out under the stars along the North Fork River.  Each tent will house two people, so be prepared to share your tent space.  All drinking and hand washing water will be brought along and a primitive portable outhouse will provide for sanitary needs.
Students who wish to stay at Field Camp the nights before or after their course can reserve a spot by calling the Glacier Institute. See Field Camp description for facility information.
 
Food:  All meals beginning with lunch the first day will be provided.
 
Equipment:  All raft equipment and camping gear (tents, sleeping bags and pads) will be provided.  Neoprene booties will also be provided for your use to keep your feet warm.  All gear will be packed into provided waterproof bags. In addition, the following are essential items for the raft trip:
  • Sunglasses or eyeglasses with retainer strap (or a piece of string)
  • Several changes of warm clothes, hat and gloves and raingear (layers of varying warmth and materials that do not retain cold when wet- polypropylene, wool, and nylon are appropriate while cotton and denim are not)
  • Light shirt and shorts
  • Hiking shoes to wear for short hikes
  • Ziploc or waterproof bags for things that you want constant access to that need to stay dry (example: cameras, journals and etc.)
  • Extra clothes to change into at the end of the day
 
Please see your gear list for additional items.
 
 
Physical Requirements: Moderate hikes and paddling. We will be in a raft that is paddled by our guide.  However, we may be asked to help paddle certain sections of the river.  Our hikes will be short, less than two miles and less than 500 feet elevation gain.
 
Transportation: We will carpool to Montana Raft Company (less than three miles).
 
Weather: This course will not be canceled due to weather.
 
Tentative Itinerary:
We’ll start our day with a short indoor classroom presentation on river ecology, emphasizing principles of river dynamics, floodplain and groundwater ecology, hydrology, and aquatic entomology.  We will then travel to Montana Raft Company to get outfitted and travel to our starting point at the Canadian border to begin our float.  We will eat all meals and sleep along the river’s banks, finishing our float at the Polebridge river access.  If water levels are higher or lower than expected, we may choose alternate locations to begin or end the float. We will return to our vehicles and end the course by about 5PM on the second day..
 
Academic Credit:
This course may be taken for 18 Office of Public Instruction (OPI) renewal units (for teacher’s license renewal).  If you wish to take an Institute course for OPI credit, you will be asked to fill out paperwork and pay a $20 credit fee at the start of your course, payable to Flathead Valley Community College.

Jul 24 From Grace to Red Shoe Courage

Courage weaves a beautiful, warm, and bright new reality.

What is Red Shoe Courage? Red Shoe Courage is being yourself, loving who you are, loving what you do, identifying personal value, and loving the people around you. 

We all experience peaks and valleys in our lives. It doesn’t matter where we have been in the past or where we find ourselves now. Growth can come from a positive attitude and the willingness to challenge our self-belief. Through grace, courage is the gift of becoming the person we are meant to be. The seeds of courage fuel our heart to change, and possess perfections of our dream.

From Grace to Red Shoe Courage is a true story, drawn from life’s comedydrama, and a miraculous birth of purpose.
