Urban Lunch 

When the appeal of spending an entire weekend loafing on the couch watching marathons of The Hills, Real Housewives of New Jersey or Law and Order begins to wane, you'll be thankful you live in a town where going on a date with Mother Nature is no more than 10 minutes away. The Greenbelt, Foothills, Boise River, Lucky Peak Reservoir, MK Nature Center and countless parks keep Boise from facing a tragic fate as an asphalt hellhole in the middle of the Idaho desert. Local entrepreneurial incubator, Boise WaterCooler, hosts monthly panel discussions during afternoon lunch breaks, and this month's focus is "Wild (Nature) in the City."

A four-person panel consisting of Andy Brunelle of the U.S. Forest Service and Trout Unlimited; Rob Teidemann, ecologist for Ecological Design; Julia Grant, Foothills open space manager for Boise City Parks and Recreation; and Wendy Larimore, development coordinator with Parks and Rec, will address the question of how to sustain and improve the scenic elements of the city. The talk is free, but if you'd like to reserve a $10 lunch by Jenny's Lunch Line, email urbanlunch@gmail.com.
