Excursions into the Boulder-White Cloud Mountains after Labor Day offer opportunities for solitude in a gorgeous landscape. Protection by Wilderness designation means changes from prior policies that affect hikers and backpackers. A recreation resource manager from the USFS will discuss the Wilderness boundaries and how changes will impact your trip planning and backcountry camping practices. Get psyched for an insiders view and how you can minimize degradation of fragile alpine ecosystems.

Time and location: 7 pm at the Trophy Room, Idaho Fish and Game Headquarters, 600 South Walnut Street, Boise, Idaho. Park at rear of building and enter through the door on the northeastern corner.

IMR monthly meetings are a way to hear about topics of interest to Idaho outdoor enthusiasts. Starting in 2017, meetings are held on the 2nd Thursday of the month and are free and open to the public. (Of course, we shamelessly hope you like what you see and will join the club--but we also don’t pressure you!) We provide outing updates, announcements, and have a 45-minute presentation followed by discussion and/or social time so people have a chance to meet one another.
