Idaho's newest (and some of the state's youngest) authors are anxiously awaiting this week's unveiling of their first publication: Hoo, Hoo ...Lives in Hulls Gulch?, a celebration of the Boise Foothills' native animals and plants.
The 20-page hardcover book, which features artwork, poetry and photography by local students and FLC volunteers, will be celebrated Wednesday, Dec. 11, 5:30-7:30 p.m., at a book-signing party at the Foothills Learning Center.
Hoo, Hoo, a collaboration of Boise public schools, the Cabin and the FLC, includes poems by Cynthia Mann Elementary and Horizon Elementary students and original artwork by Timberline High School students. All of the student art will become part of FLC's permanent exhibits.
Kristin Lundstrom, the environmental education coordinator at Foothills Learning Center, told Boise Weekly that the book is the culmination of a lot of work by not only the FLC and Boise public schools, but The Cabin as well.
“It was a collaborative effort over a period of three years. It represents what I really appreciate about Boise and Treasure Valley residents: their willingness to engage, collaborate, celebrate and protect the places and people they care deeply about," said Lundstrom.
Hoo, Hoo is $20 and is available at the Foothills Learning Center, 3188 Sunset Peak Rd.
