It’s “Bearly Summer!” Come bear with the rest of us on June 21.

June 21 is “just” the longest day of the year, is all. And, the first day of summer. And, the official kickoff of the hike season (although we’ve already been out wandering in the woods — just like the bears.)

In celebration of the advent of summer, Idaho Conservation League and FSPW are hosting a party (imagine that) at Evans Brothers Coffee on said day. Beginning at 5:30, we will have some “beary” good times, with no-host beer and wine being served by Eichardt’s, food, local music and a presentation on bears and how (how not) to live with them in the woods. Come out and help us celebrate!
