We had nearly 60 people come to the TU meeting on Wednesday night at the MK Nature Center for a program presentation from the Henry’s Fork Foundation.
Here is a video on the work at Mores and Grimes Creeks over the years. This video was shot last June at Mores Creek.
For our March 12, 2014 program we will feature a look at the Henry’s Fork with Brandon Hoffner, Executive Director of the Henry’s Fork Foundation.
To begin the presentation, we will show “30 Years on the Fork”, an 8 minute film dedicated to the HFF 30th Anniversary produced by Kris Millgate of Tight Lines Media in Idaho Falls. This will you a background on the Henry’s Fork Foundation at the 30,000 foot level and a few of the local personalities. Then we will get a more detailed history of the Foundation, a highlight of past projects and efforts that still invigorate the HFF membership, and a synopsis of current challenges and the measures that HFF is taking to respond to these challenges (or opportunities). This is going to be a really good program.
A fly tying session starts at 6:30 with the regular meeting beginning at 7:30 in the MK Nature Center auditorium, 600 South Walnut behind the IDFG headquarters building. Hope you can make it.
