1/9 – Comprehensive Wildlife Strategy in the Boise National Forest

Speaker Paul Bryant, Resource and Planning Staff Officer, with the Boise National Forest and Rachelle Vandeberg of Boise Cascade talked to us about balancing the needs of wildlife, vegetation and land use in the Boise National Forest.

In this show, I refer to a Wildlife Conservation Strategy highlights document, the link to which is here.

Also highlighted: The Big Burn, Teddy Roosevelt and the Fire the Saved America, by Timothy Egan, This book chronicles the events of the fire of August 1910, and as it does, talks about the formation of the Forest Service, the establishment of the National Forest system.  It is also an interesting look into the life of president Teddy Roosevelt and his chief forester, Gifford Pinchot, and their efforts to further the idea of public land as a national treasure.  It also highlights some of the personalities and communities of North Idaho, like the town of Wallace, at the turn of the century.

  1. Can I retrieve this conversation via podcast? I was very interested in hearing this and had to tune out right when you guys were getting started.

    • As of today you can! Click on the link above. It’s not a podcast, unfortunately, since then we’d have to have the rights to the music, but still you can listen in on your computer if you miss a show….
