Break out your favorite chili recipes and join the Idaho Department of Fish and Game for an evening of conversation and presentations.
Anyone interested in local wildlife management issues is welcome to attend the December sportsperson chili dinner cookoff meeting on Tuesday, Dec. 9 at the regional fish and game office, 3316 16th street in Lewiston.
The dinner meeting will begin at 5:30 p.m. with presentations on several topics, including: an overview of 2014 access site improvements, fall fisheries highlights, a check station data summary.
“This meeting is intended to stimulate casual conversation while provide a chance for folks to break the cabin fever and warm up with homemade chili,” regional supervisor Jerome Hansen said.
Participants are encouraged to bring a pot of chili, soup or stew to add to the competition. Attendees will have a chance to vote on their favorite chili, soup or stew.
Dinner will be served free of charge on a first come-first served basis. Contact the Clearwater Region office at 799-5010 for details.
Bird boxes offered
To get ahead of the early spring arrival of Idaho’s State Bird, the Mountain Bluebird, the Idaho Department of Fish and Game (IDFG) is offering a limited number of bluebird nest boxes for $7.
Funds collected from the nest box sale are used to enhance the Lewiston Wildlife Habitat Area located near the IDFG office.
Fish and Game volunteers constructed the cedar nest boxes using donated lumber from Idaho Forest Products in Lewiston.
