Idaho living legend Joe Leonard will give a presentation about his pioneering outdoor exploits starting way back in the 1960s, the era of three-pin bindings, leather knickers, gaiters and wool socks. He will address what the wilderness and all that Idaho skiing, kayaking and climbing has meant to him, including the spiritual benefits of a life spent in the wilderness and beyond. A gifted write, Joe’s memoir, “The Son of the Madam of Mustang Ranch,” won a Best of 2016 recognition from the National Outdoor Book Awards.

Time and location: 7 pm at the Trophy Room at the Idaho Fish and Game Headquarters, 600 South Walnut, Boise, Idaho. Park behind the building (on the east side).

IMR monthly meetings are a way to hear about topics of interest to Idaho outdoor enthusiasts. Starting in 2017, meetings are held on the 2nd Thursday of the month and are free and open to the public. (Of course, we shamelessly hope you like what you see and will join the club--but we also don’t pressure you!) We provide outing updates, announcements, and have a 45-minute presentation followed by discussion and/or social time so people have a chance to meet one another.
