Next week, Thursday, July 3, the walk will be led by local butterfly (and spider) expert and naturalist Ann Christensen, along with Jeanne Cassell, founder of the Sawtooth Botanical Garden’s Wildflower Walks. This is a nature discovery hike featuring (hopefully) butterflies and wildflowers currently planned for Taylor Canyon – noted as a 4-mile, easy hike but with a bit of a climb. Please bring your own picnic and wear comfortable walking shoes. Meet at the Garden at 9:30 am (or at the end of Lake Creek Road at 10:00 am) to carpool, and the outing is expected to last until 2 pm. To make a reservation for this FREE experience, call the Garden at 208.726.9358.
You can capsulize most pop music acts by reciting how many hits they’ve had and how many millions of albums they’ve sold. But these conventional measurements fall short when you’re assessing the impact of The Beach Boys. To be sure, this band has birthed a torrent of hit singles and sold albums by the tens of millions. But its greater significance lies in the fact that it changed the musical landscape so profoundly that every pop act since has been in its debt. Happily for us all, The Beach Boys continue to create and perform with the same bold imagination and style that marked their explosive debut over 50 years ago.
