Curlew Grassland Tour

Idahoans love their national forest, but most don't know we also have a national grassland: the Curlew National Grassland located in southeast Idaho. The 47,000 acres of public land are open to hiking, birding, hunting and photography.

To visit and learn more about this area, join the Curlew Grassland tour on June 13 at 9 a.m. Visit interesting sites and discuss grazing, burns and wildlife on the grassland.

Lunch speakers include Ken Sanders from the University of Idaho, Ken Timothy from the US Forest Service and Howard Horton from Agricultural Research Service.

Attendees will meat at 9 a.m. at the Pavilion on Stone Reservoir, or can take a bus leaving at 8 a.m. from Malad (30 North 100 West).

To attend, please RSVP by calling 208-766-2243 or email

The Curlew Grasslands Tour is sponsored by the University of Idaho, Oneida County Extension, Idaho Rangelands Resource Commission, Curlew Horse and Cattle Association, ARS, Buist Fields, Allied Industries and Idaho Cattle Association.
