The Sawtooth NRA at 50: Our Legacy and Future Challenges

May 24 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm MDT

The Sawtooth NRA was created 50 years ago to protect the iconic mountain landscapes of central Idaho. Rather than create a national park, Congress believed that a national recreation area would preserve the natural, scenic, historic, pastoral, and fish and wildlife values while also providing a recreational playground for Idahoans and the nation.

On Tuesday, May 24, the Andrus Center will host a virtual event to explore how well this vision has been achieved, and to assess the protection challenges likely in store for this sanctuary of wilderness peaks, flowery meadows, and mountain lakes over the next 50 years. The full agenda will be posted soon.

This conference will be hosted online through the conference platform, HOPIN. The Andrus Center has successfully hosted four events using the HOPIN platform and we hope attendees enjoy the unique online experience that goes well beyond your typical ZOOM webinar. Tips, tricks and frequently asked questions regarding the platform will be provided closer to the date.

Registration for this virtual event is $20 and discounted student tickets are available thanks to the generosity of sponsors and individual donors. Any questions can be directed to We hope to see you there!
