It’s no secret that Idaho is the fastest growing state in the country.

What is not so well known is what this means for the land, water and community of the Wood River Valley. And how we can get ahead of the challenges of growth and development in the Sun Valley area.

Dr. Monica Hubbard, assistant professor in Boise State University’s Department of Public Policy and Administration, will share her insights at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 18, at Sun Valley Community School theater. Hubbard teaches courses on Environmental Politics, Water Policy and Governance and Public Lands Policy at BSU, and she has done research in the fields of contaminants, water governance, community adaptive capacity and land use transition.

Her talk will include findings on the potential impacts of growth on agriculture in Ada, Bannock and Canyon counties and rural and urban communities’ acceptance of water management practices.

The free presentation will include a screening of the film, “Home,” which the Wood River Land Trust commissioned to celebrate its 25th anniversary, which it embarked on in December 2019.

And the Land Trust’s executive director Scott Boettger will join Hubbard in fielding questions from the audience following the presentation.

Hubbard is the first speaker in the Wood River Land Trust’s 2020 Thinking Globally, Acting locally speaker series. Additional speakers will talk about river health on March 18 and pollinator health on April 23.
