On Thursday, January 20 from 5-8 PM, the Rustic Inn Creekside and Spa in Jackson will generously donate 10% of food and beverage purchases to Teton Science Schools’ Pika Research Project.

Together with the Meg & Bert Raynes Wildlife Fund, and a variety of other local partners, the Conservation Research Center is entering its second year of a study investigating connections between pika populations and climate change.

The event will include project materials and posters, experts on hand to answer questions, and a raffle of pika items, featuring a pika photo box by Henry H. Holdsworth and Wild by Nature Gallery; “Green Fire: Stories from the Wild”, a new book by local author, Earle Layser; pika prints and notecards from PikaWorks, and more.

So, mark your calendars, spread the word and stop by to enjoy the Rustic Inn’s winter menu, including Rock Rabbit House Salad, Haystack Sweet Potato Fries, Talus Tacos Pescado, Coney Cheese Board, and Pikarita Pizza.

This project is a 1% for the Tetons grant recipient. For more information, please contact Sara Fagan at (307) 734-3734 or sara.fagan@tetonscience.org.
