Celebrate the Centennial of Craters of the Moon National Monument and Preserve from your armchair this coming Thursday.

The iconic, enigmatic Idahoan landscape east of Carey will be the focus of a free presentation at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, June 6, at Ketchum’s Community Library.

Josh Johnson, Idaho Conservation League’s Central Idaho director, will discuss the area’s geological formation. He will be followed by Ted Stout, former chief of Interpretation and Education at Craters, who will talk about the last hundred-plus years of human interaction with the landscape.

Stout just returned from his second through-hike across the area’s Great Rift, a fissure extending 65 miles which opened up to emit lava flows 15,000 years ago. It is believed to be the largest, deepest and most recent volcanic rift system in the continental United States.

To see the presentation in person, RSVP at The presentation also will be livestreamed and recorded to watch later at
