Lewiston and Idaho Falls stand like bookends at either end of the Snake River's path through Idaho. Those two ends will converge Nov. 28-29 in Boise, Idaho, at Snake: the River Between Us, a conference about the future of Idaho's largest river. The meeting grows out of a series of articles written in tandem by the Idaho Falls Post Register and the Lewiston Tribune. Those articles explored a range of issues, including recreation, wildlife, hydropower and pollution, that will be covered by panels including Dan Beard, former commissioner of the Bureau of Reclamation; Idaho Gov. Phil Batt and former Idaho Gov. Cecil Andrus, whose Andrus Center for Public Policy is helping to sponsor the event.
Registration costs $90; contact the Andrus Center for Public Policy, P.O. Box 852, Boise, ID 83701 (208/385-4218).
