In September 2016, ICL held its first annual Scott Reed conservation lecture and dinner. Along with his wife, Mary Lou, and others, Scott cofounded the Idaho Conservation League in 1973 to serve as a conservation voice at the Idaho Legislature. Now in its third year, this event brings together new and long-time ICL members, current and past staff, and conservation advocates to honor the late Scott Reed.
Plan to attend this fall celebration in a stunning setting on Hayden Lake. This year, ICL welcomes Rod Gramer, president of Idaho Business for Education, a group of nearly 200 Idaho business leaders working to transform the Idaho education system into one of the best in the country. He spent 38 years working as a reporter, newspaper editor and television news executive.
Gramer is the author of two books: Fighting the Odds: The Life of Senator Frank Church, which he wrote with historian LeRoy Ashby, and a novel, The Good Assassin. He has published articles in numerous publications, including The New Republic, USA Today, Changes magazine, and newspapers throughout Idaho.
Gramer will talk about the challenges that conservationists in Idaho face today and reflect on the late Idaho Sen. Church who found ways to advance conservation in the state despite its conservative politics.
The evening includes a catered dinner, no-host bar and great company.
