NEW TRAILS AND OLD TALES: THAT’S WHAT BONNER IS MADE OF
By Jen Slayden, Make It Missoula
I occasionally enjoy taking the scenic route home to Bonner from Missoula, just to see what is new. I drive via the old Highway 10 which meanders through East Missoula, past Marshall Mountain, into West Riverside, over the bridge to Milltown, and then on into Bonner. Looking back through the rear view mirror of the past twenty years, the physical transformation of the landscape has been remarkable. What once was undeveloped acreage in Bandmann Flats now sits the polished and manicured Canyon River Golf Course and community. As I drive by Marshall Mountain, memories of night skiing take me back to my college days when life was more freestyle in every way.
Today a new scene emerges as I approach West Riverside. A fresh pedestrian trail is materializing at highway 10 and Tamarack road which heads east.

A note from the Superfun(d) Directors:
Along with Alice Whiteman, I am directing this year's 2016 Superfun(d) Run, our annual COMMUNITY fun run sponsored by Run Wild Missoula. This event is a wonderful way for us to come together to celebrate Earth Day, healthy family fun, and community.
SAVE THE DATE: April 23rd. 1 mile fun run starts at 9am, and 5k or 10k starts at 9:30. Once again we have secured the funds for ALL BONNER K-8 students to participate for FREE in either the 1 mile or the 5k run!
Parents, please watch for your child's participation waiver to come home. These need to be turned in by April 15th! Other community members who would like to run or walk can sign up directly online at Run Wild Missoula at runwildmissoula.org
Also, Our Savior's Lutheran Church will be serving a pancake breakfast starting at 9:30 for community members. With a donation from the new owners of the mill site, ALL BONNER STUDENTS who run the race will receive a FREE BREAKFAST! All other family and community members can partake for $5. The church will have a craft sale during this time as well.
We are actively seeking help from volunteers. Positions include set up, course support, tear down, and registration. Please contact us if you are interested.

Do you ever want resources to refute the climate science doubters? Here are some of the best:
Where are we going? Atmospheric CO2 measured at Muana Loa Observatory, Hawaii, is not only increasing but doing so at a faster rate.

December, 1975 – 330.8
December, 1995 – 360.7 (29.9ppm increase in 20 yr)
December, 2015 – 401.9 (41.2ppm increase in 20 yr)
