This year's Idaho Environmental Policy Forum was a great success and we thank everyone who attended yesterday! There were some great discussions on working lands conservation, the legislative perspective, and of course the board member hot topics -- ORFAC, quagga mussels, gem state air quality initiative, and BLM funding and mesic restoration.

It is so important to hold space for conversations like these and we at the Idaho Environmental Forum look forward to continuing our mission to promote serious, cordial, and productive discourse on a broad range of environmental policies affecting Idaho.

The presence of quagga mussel larvae has been confirmed in the Snake River.

This invasive species can quickly spread and clog pipes that deliver water for drinking, energy, agriculture, recreation, and a variety of other uses. They can also harm fish and other aquatic wildlife.

Here is what you can do to help:

👉🏻If your watercraft (including kayaks, canoes, paddleboards, boats, and others) has been on the Snake River in the Centennial Park area of Twin Falls in the past 30 days, please take it to an Idaho State Department of Agriculture hot wash station in Twin Falls for proper treatment. DO NOT attempt to decontaminate watercraft yourself.

👉🏻All boat ramps and public access to the water in the Centennial Park area are closed until further notice as the investigation in the area continues. The public’s cooperation in staying out of the impacted area is crucial to the success of ISDA’s efforts.

👉🏻Anyone who owns a watercraft must be vigilant in practicing the steps of CLEAN, DRAIN, DRY.

Wildlife in the Boise Foothills

The Foothills open space is a prime example of opportunities for recreationists, landowners, planners, and resource agencies to collectively understand the value of wildlife habitat and collaborate to conserve it; a nonrenewable resource where fragmentation is habitat loss.

It's also home to one of Idaho's largest mule deer populations.

With suburban and exurban development and high-density recreation booming, the wildlife habitat is an important matter for folks and community planners to understand when making choices for development, landscaping, and recreation.
Presentation by:
BRAD LOWE
Regional Habitat Manager
Idaho Fish and Game, Southwest Region
Join us to listen to Brad discuss this important wildlife habitat, the conflicts, and potential solutions to conserve this valuable resource while addressing growth, development, and recreation.
