Community Invited to Showing of Bud Moore Documentary

Spent early career working in Lochsa River country

— The Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forests, in partnership with the Idaho County Historic Preservation Commission, will celebrate Idaho Archaeology and Historic Preservation Month with a public showing of the documentary Bud’s Place.

The event will take place on Wednesday, May 17, at 6:30 p.m. at the Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forests office in Grangeville, 104 Airport Road.

Documentary filmmaker George Sibley has spent the past year producing Bud’s Place, which highlights the life of conservationist Bud Moore - from his humble beginnings in Lolo, Mont., to his early career working in Lochsa River country, and throughout his career with the U.S. Forest Service. Moore served as the District Ranger of the Powell Ranger District, Deputy Director of the USFS Fire and Aviation programs in Washington, D.C., and Director of Fire and Aviation Management for USFS Northern Region in Missoula, Montana. Moore’s life of service tells an inspiring story of conservation leadership.

An introduction to the video will be provided by Moore’s son, Bill Moore.

Each year, the Idaho State Historic Preservation Office organizes and promotes statewide opportunities for the public to learn about Idaho archaeology, history, and historic preservation. The Idaho Archaeology and Historic Preservation Month program is a celebration of everything to do with Idaho's archaeology and history, and events are held throughout the state. This year’s theme is “Idaho’s Adventures in Preservation.”
