All Species Ball 

It's not often that you're asked to dress up as your favorite plant or animal species, but when the opportunity arises, you have to be ready to don your glitziest Tagetes erecta attire and saunter down the red carpet. As chance would have it, this Halloween that opportunity has come knocking. Advocates for the West will host the All Species Ball, a benefit put on to support the organization. Based in Boise, Advocates for the West is a conservation group comprised of lawyers and scientists who work hand in hand to make sure Federal and state agencies manage public lands and wildlife properly across the West, as well as adhere to environmental law.

Environmentalism has gotten a lot more glam since the days when folks chained themselves to bulldozers and the "All Species Ball" is a celebration of that progression. Costumed revelers can shake their tail feathers to animal-themed tunes provided by the Boise Mobile DJs, while the quieter critters can try their luck at the silent auction. Prizes will be awarded to participants with the best furry fashions, with categories including "scariest costume" and "best use of faux feathers or fur." With a title like "All Species" you can't go wrong, so muscle up a mussel costume and take a walk on the wild side.

Saturday, Oct. 31, 8 p.m.-1 a.m., $25 per person or $45 per couple, Doubletree Riverside, 2900 Chinden Blvd., 208-342-7024, advocateswest.org.
