Namesake: Curly Fry was named by the Boise WaterShed Environmental Education Center. We worked with the watershed folks to name Curly Fry because the biosolids from the watershed treatment center are taken to Curly’s home, the 20 Mile South Farm, for processing!
Here’s what Mary Lugg from the WaterShed Center says (condensed) about Curly Fry:
“This name combines the common name of the Long-billed Curlew and the delicious dish we all know and love. The name was chosen because Idaho is crazy about potatoes! What’s not to love about the potato? You can eat them in many different dishes including the curly fry!
But we love this little Curly Fry for another special reason- her transmitter will allow us to learn more about the migration patterns and population needs of the Long-billed Curlew!”
