  • Saving African vultures.
  • "Empty Bowls."
  • An interfaith Thanksgiving.
  • From Croatia to Boise.

Earlier this month in Kenya, five vultures were found barely alive after they were illegally poisoned. Thanks to the quick thinking of a woman who is a vulture liaison officer for the Boise-based Peregrine Fund, the birds were rescued and are slowly recovering. We'll learn more about this cross-continental collaboration.

The Idaho Food Bank is putting on it's annual "Empty Bowls" fundraiser on Friday at the Boise Centre, which is in its twenty-second year. We'll talk with organizers about how they plan to use the money raised for Idaho families struggling to put food in the table.


As the holidays approach, Idaho Matters will talk with a group of interfaith leaders in advance of their Wednesday event November 27 at Cathedral of the Rockies in Boise.


What might a newcomer to the Treasure Valley observe...through sound? A Croatian radio producer has been visiting the Treasure Valley as an artist-in-residence at Surel's Place. We'll premiere her piece, "The Treasure of Boise" on Idaho Matters.
