Idaho Public Lands And Wildlife Alefest
IDAHO PUBLIC LANDS AND WILDLIFE ALEFEST PROMOTES CONSERVATION
May 25th, 2017
There may be no better way to raise funds and awareness for Idaho’s public lands and wildlife than with a cold brew at the 1st Idaho Public Lands and Wildlife Alefest.
The first annual Idaho Public Lands and Wildlife Alefest is on Saturday, June 3rd, from 2pm to 5pm at Payette Brewing Co. The event is hosted by the Idaho Wildlife Federation and Payette Brewing in an effort to bring awareness to the efforts to protect the state’s wildlife.
If you’re interested in the future of Idaho wildlife, then you’ll want to attend Alefest where you can drink beer while chatting and hearing from leaders in the wildlife, sportsman, and conservation clubs.
Fun and Games and Learning
Not only is this a learning experience, but there will be more than $10,000 in raffle prizes, auction items, door prizes, and free beer.
With the $20 entry fee, you receive a Payette beer ($5 value), two raffle tickets ($10 value), a door prize raffle ticket ($5 value), an Idaho Wildlife Federation membership ($35), and an IWF sticker. Kids get in free!
Stock Up on Essential Items
There will also be the opportunity to peruse booths manned by wildlife advocates. You’ll also be able to participate in the silent auction, try your hand at games, and check out the variety of gear for sale.
Local businesses will be on hand—like Argali Outdoors, Exo Mountain Gear, and Idaho Angler—to offer gear for outdoor activities, hunting, and fishing. Whether you’re a novice or an expert, you’re sure to find gear for your next adventure. Several of the businesses will be donating 10 percent of the proceeds from the sales to IWF.
