Idaho bridges more than the continental divide:
A red state with a streak of bright purple, Idaho banks on tech, recreation and agriculture. Its history of logging, ranching and mining has left a complicated legacy on its awe-inspiring landscape. In Boise, America’s fastest growing city, you can ski and golf on the same winter day. But the challenges and opportunities facing state and tribal governments are familiar: urban sprawl, limited resources, energy sources, and conserving the wild for future generations.
Come and see for yourself:
- How Boise balances growth and conservation
- GOP politicians and Millennial voters
- Protecting vs. using public lands
- Climate change and carbon farming
- Ranching and wolves
- Grazing and sage grouse
- Nuclear waste and national parks
- Puget Sound orcas, Columbia-Snake River dams and Idaho salmon
