by Michelle Saport  |   

UAF Cooperative Extension Service presents three free classes in Anchorage tonight, presented by Art Nash, energy specialist, and Leif Albertson, health, home and family development agent.

Radon Thursday, Nov. 29, 5:30-6 p.m. | Atwood Building (550 W. 7th Ave.)

Radon (which may contribute to lung cancer) is a serious danger in Alaska and a concern of the EPA. Understanding where radon comes from, how to detect it and how to take care of it, if found, are important in maintaining healthy air quality in your home. Extension publications will be given out and radon detection kits will be available for purchase.

Lead-free Hunting Thursday, Nov. 29, 6-6:30 p.m. | Atwood Building (550 W. 7th Ave.)

Exposure to lead rifle ammunition can pose a health risk for those relying heavily on harvested large game. This session examines human health concerns as well as the viability of non-lead alternatives. This topic should be of interest to all consumers of wild game.

Home Energy Efficiency Thursday, Nov. 29, 6:30-7:30 p.m. | Atwood Building (550 W. 7th Ave.)

A home electricity audit is a systematic survey of any home; it can cut electric bills, help families cope with fluctuating energy prices and reduce the environmental impact of electricity consumption. This class will look at ways to conserve electricity and lower your electric bills without harshly impacting your daily living routine.
