Page 10 Free Press Thursday, March 5, 2015 hike 4 The Cheney-Spokane Chapter of the Ice Age Flood Institute is planning a pair of events for March. The first is a free lecture by s 'entist Michael McCol- lum, "The Incredible Shrinking Glacial Lake: A nonfiction account of the rise and downfall of Glacial Lake Colum- bid' on Thursday, March 12, from 7 - 9 p.m. at Eastern Washington University's Science Building room 137. McCollum will present a story 20,000 years In the making and recording a 3,000 year onslaught by cata- strophic floods whose sediments finally overtook the lake's accommodation space and the continuing assault by incremental head ward erosion of the southwest bed- rock battlements at the Grand Coulee, followed by the final betrayal in which global warming caused the disap- pearance of the once supportive Okanogan ice lobe. After an extended Army career, McCollum spent a year with the U.S. Geological Survey, Salt Lake City, Utah, and became the vice president of the Cordilleran Geological Survey, Inc. He and his wife, Linda, have mapped over 500 square miles of local geology in an area where the Ice Age Floods deposits are well displayed but have received little attention in the past. Saturday, March 14, the Institute will host a field trip hike from the Lower Palouse Canyon to Palonse Falls led by Dr. Gene Kiver and Lloyd Stoess. The hike is eight miles up the Palouse Canyon to Palouse Falls State Park, and begins at 9 a.m. at Lyons Ferry State Park Fish Hatchery, wrapping up around 5 p.m. at the falls. Kiver and Stoess will emphasize the Ice Age Floods story and local Native American and settlement history. The hike follows a combination of established trails, game trails, and bush whacking. There are also some steep ascents and descents. Walking poles may be helpful. Vehides will shuttle hikers back to the hatchery. Chil- dren must be at least age 10 and must be accompanied by an adult hiker. No pets are allowed on the hike, which on a scale of I to 10, 10 being the most difficult, is a 10. Detailed information, registration form and liabil- ity release form are available online at www.IceAge-, "Calendar Tab" and at, "Events Tab." For registration questions, contact Linda Long, or call (509) 235-4251.

Part of the inspiration for the CARES (Commu- nity Assisted Response) program came from an incident Spokane Assistant Fire Chief Brian Schaeffer related. Arriving at a 911 call he found an elderly man had fallen out of bed and his wife was unable to help. The home was familiar because it had numerous previous calls. After spend- ing several hours with the couple, Schaeffer tried unsuccessfully to find a solution that could assist them -- and others -- to find help, other than with a quick call to those three familiar digits. Then came a call from Lisa Parise who was doing research of her own to find a place for one of her stu- dents to do a practicum in social work - specifically with the Fire Department. In a serendipitous too- ment, Parise, director of field education and train- ing for the School of So- cial Work, made a call to Schaeffer. He told her that the work the student wanted to do was already being done by paid profes- sionals. But what came out of the Conversation was more research on both sides that resulted information of the CARES Team. Crafted in part out of a similar program in Arizona where volunteers would go out and deal with the after effects of a 911 call, the newly titled CARES program put students at the heart of crisis interven- tion as maybe nothing else could. What really connected the university program and the Spokane Fire Depart- ment was a similar code of ethics, Parise said. After some study it was deter- mined the two would be a very good match. In the initial days of CARES, two students, along with Parise and Students work out of Schaeffer, were tasked with a variety of fire stations in doing research and devel- Spokane, Spokane Valley, oping the program.
