change1marker-anthonyChange is all around us and as we dive into a two month theme of “Change in the Valley” we wanted to set the stage and discuss how we deal with change with a local expert on the topic.

Got an idea for a show? We’d love to hear about it! Contact us at buildingagreeneridaho@gmail.com
