Jean Conly Smith, Idaho Clubwomen, and the Campaign for Sawtooth National Park
REGISTER HERE for "'See Idaho First': Jean Conly Smith, Idaho Clubwomen, and the Campaign for Sawtooth National Park" on Thursday, February 4, 2021, 6-7 p.m. MST.
Please join us at the February 4, 2021 Fettuccine Forum, where Douglas Dodd, who grew up in Nampa, Idaho and is Professor of History at California State University, Bakersfield, explores how Idaho’s Clubwomen mobilized to create a national park in the Sawtooth region in Idaho, the only western state without one. Although they were unsuccessful, the struggle resulted in important changes for the management of the Sawtooths and influenced future battles over the area’s future.
Douglas Dodd grew up in Nampa and is Professor of History at California State University, Bakersfield, where he teaches environmental history, public history, and the history of the American West. He holds a Ph.D. in History from the University of California, Santa Barbara.
