McCall Arts and Humanities Council will be hosting a series of discussions in the study and application of our humanity in relation to our environment. These talks will be held at the Central Idaho Historical Museum’s Carpenter Shop. Built in 1937 and recently restored it is the perfect backdrop to reflect on preservation, restoration, heritage and what it means to leave a legacy. Guest speakers will give a presentation in their field of expertise and then will open up to guests for questions and comments.
Donnelly resident Dan Noakes will take us on his two week journey skiing and hiking over 100 miles across the 2.3-million acres of the Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness. We will get to explore not only the most remote place in the lower 48 states with him but also it’s former residents. Noakes gained a great appreciation for the people who once lived, worked and died in “The Frank.” He will also delve into the modern controversy of the Forest Service’s decision to burn down cabins as it acquired private lands inside the Frank in the name of wilderness preservation.
