This Thursday, noon, at the Iron Horse, we’ll have an update briefing on the Corps of Engineers death sentence for the dike road trees. Coeur d’Alene City Councilman John Bruning will give an update from the City’s perspective, including a discussion of a new ad hoc committee being formed.  And Terry Harris from KEA will give an update on what is becoming an extraordinary campaign to save the trees. (Here’s the online petition, by the way)

The briefing will mark the fall-season kick-off of the 39th consecutive year of regularly-scheduled general informational meetings at the Iron Horse by Kootenai Environmental Alliance, the oldest non-profit conservation organization in Idaho.
