On a rainy Saturday morning, 3,000 people turned out in support of public lands. What happened next was beautiful.
Saturday March 4 started as a rainy day and it ended with one of the greatest showings of support for our public lands in Idaho’s history. Nearly 3,000 people came to the Idaho Capitol to show their love for the Idaho way of life.
Even before the rally started, Idahoans showed their passion for public lands and their humor. Here, Greg Stone of Boise has a suggestion of what to do with three of the most notorious anti-public land scofflaws.
Protecting our public lands is about passing them on to the next generation, and there were plenty of young people and families at the rally. Here, the Griffis family of Grangeville family puts the politicians on notice.
Tami Campbell of Boise makes a familiar statement. “Esto Perpetua” or “Let it be perpetual” is Idaho’s state motto.
One of the strongest themes of the rally was our responsibility to pass on public lands to our children and grandchildren. Here, a rally-goer puts that message in plain language.
With a diverse crowd from all over Idaho before him, Jimmy Hallyburton gets the crowd warmed up.
Clint Barg of Boise doesn’t have to say a thing to speak volumes.
After the speakers were done, rally goers flooded the Capitol, sending the message that our lands must stay in our hands.
