Portneuf River Gathering/Walk to be held Saturday, April 23

Portneuf River Vision Study

Residents are again being asked to weigh in on the future of the Portneuf River.

Saturday, April 23 from 10 a.m. to noon, the City and Idaho State University will host the Portneuf River Gathering/Walk. The two-mile walk along the Portneuf from Centennial Park to Raymond Park will be led by internationally recognized eco-artist Basia Irland who is also blogging about the river for National Geographic. The opportunity marks a chance for residents to connect with the Portneuf at existing parks and take in temporary sculptures placed along the river.

“During January and February, we received over 600 responses to our visual preferences survey and almost all of them provided great insight into how Pocatello sees the Portneuf in the future,” said Hannah Sanger, Science and Environment Division Manager with the City of Pocatello. “Now that the weather has warmed up, we’d like to bring the community down to the river to experience it as it is today. We want them to share their stories of the river, view historical photos of the river on site, and connect with the river through temporary sculptures that community members are installing this Friday.”

At the end of the walk, community members will be able to vote on their top short-term and long-term river restoration projects. A list of over 40 potential projects has been created based on feedback received last winter. The River Visioning working group is also soliciting written community stories about the Portneuf River. These can include short descriptions of the Portneuf or an experience along the river.

Officials ask that attendees bring appropriate clothing and footwear for the walk. A shuttle will be provided at noon back to Centennial Park.

If you can’t attend the River Gathering/Walk, you can get involved and comment on this process in several ways: 1) Email your river stories to PortneufRiver@gmail.com or drop them off at Pocatello City Hall; 2) Vote for your favorite short-term and long-term river projects at the Open House May 10 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Pocatello Community Charter School; and 3) Learn more and comment online at: river.pocatello.us.
