October 5: Dinner 5:00 – 9:00 p.m.

Dinner and Talk at the Basque Center, 601 W. Grove St., Boise

$40 per person/$75 per couple

Talk with one another and share a meal with rangeland users and keynote speaker Nathan Sayre, from the University of California, Berkeley. Sayre is author of The Politics of Scale: A History of Rangeland Science (2017), and co-author of the landmark University of Chicago Press book, Stitching the West Back Together: Conservation of Working Landscapes in the American West (2014).* Stitching across large landscapes with diverse users “requires the long, slow, patient process of talking to one another and searching for common ground that builds the trust necessary to collaborate across fence lines...”

BLM Idaho State Director Tim Murphy and UI Rangeland Center Director Karen Launchbaugh will also help us talk about adaptive management of rangelands — at scales that matter.
