Idaho Conservation League – 4th Annual Scott Reed Conservation Lecture & Dinner

October 10 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm          $60

The Idaho Conservation League is sponsoring the 4th annual conservation lecture and dinner in North Idaho in honor of the late Scott Reed, one of our founders. Along with his wife, Mary Lou, and others, Scott cofounded ICL in 1973 to serve as a conservation voice at the Idaho Legislature. In September 2016, ICL held its first annual Scott Reed conservation lecture and dinner. Now in its fourth 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 on Thursday, Oct. 10th, in a stunning setting on Hayden Lake.  This year, ICL welcomes Rick Johnson, former ICL executive director as our keynote speaker. Johnson began with ICL as a volunteer in his 20s and transitioned to ICL’s public lands director in 1985. After some time with the Sierra Club, he was ICL’s director going on 24-years and completed his time in June 2019. You’ll also hear from our new ICL executive director, Justin Hayes, and others.

We look forward to raising funds to support the Idaho Conservation League’s Emerging Leaders Program, working to engage, inspire, and empower the next generations of conservationists in Idaho. Please help us achieve this goal!

The evening includes a catered dinner, no-host cash bar and great company! All are welcome and we hope you can join!

Ladies and Gentleman, Girls and Boys, step right this way to be part of…….

Murder Under the Big Top!

Enter a world of fabulous freaks, exotic acts & mysterious management!

Anxious to bolster his small, dog-and-pony show-like circus to a spectacle rivaling Ringling Brothers, Harold Hargove’s

desperate attempts to lure audiences with jaw-dropping

attractions have created rivalries that extend beyond the center ring.

As the pressure builds for everyone–performers, guests,

and managers– a murder is committed that steals the show…

and you are left to uncover the culprit before the final act.

Was it the raging ringmaster in an attempt to clean up the spectacle?

The talented tightrope walker whose fall took them out of the limelight?

A revolting roustabout with revenge in his veins?

Or possibly a possessive performer whose death-defying demeanor went too far…

In an intense world of illusion and intrigue, you must rely

on your wit and intuition to find the killer before the grand finale!

Stay tuned for more details!

Join us for a night of murder and mystery! We’ll have live performances involving fire, contortionist, and more! Tickets will also include a circus themed dinner, snacks and beverages!
