2/13 – Boise’s today and yesterday

February 13, 2012 – Today Boise has an extensive network of trails through the Boise foothills, and a renown Greenbelt along the Boise River, but as a community, our approach to our own immediate environment wasn’t always as it is now.  Dr. Jennifer Stevens of Stevens Historical Research, Anne Hausrath and Judy Ouderkirk of the community effort to preserve land in the Hulls Gulch area and Boise City Council Member Elaine Clegg shared their views on the history of the Boise River and foothills development and how it illustrates changing environmental priorities.

While I do like to record our shows so you can listen in later if you’ve missed the live version, occasionally technical difficulties or human error intercede and I am able to capture only part of a show.  Such is the case with this episode, where our audio files starts about five minutes into the program.

Where this audio file of our program begins, I’ve already introduced our speakers. Jennifer Stevens, a professional historian, is sharing information about Boise’s recent past and the development of the Boise Greenbelt, which at the time was a controversial issue.
