Protecting the Boise Foothills

Land Trust of the Treasure Valley
The South Fork Willow Creek area covers 320 acres east of Avimor and north of Hidden Springs.

Over the last few months, the nonprofit Land Trust of the Treasure Valley has been working to raise funds to purchase an important piece of Boise Foothills land east of Avimor.

The 320 acres are home to elk, black bears, mule deer and other wildlife. It’s also a prime spot for development and for that reason in need of protection.

Eric Grace, the Executive Director of Land Trust of the Treasure Valley, joins Idaho Matters to talk more about this open space and why it's important to protect it.

Hi, my name is Hannah and I’m the assistant producer for the Idaho Matters show here at BSPR. If you have a suggestion for an Idaho Matters segment, please email idahomatters@boisestate.edu.
As Senior Producer of our live daily talk show Idaho Matters, I’m able to indulge my love of storytelling and share all kinds of information (I was probably a Town Crier in a past life!). My career has allowed me to learn something new everyday and to share that knowledge with all my friends on the radio.
