The Tubbs Hill Foundation and the Kootenai Environmental Alliance will co-host a community tribute to commemorate the work done by Art Manley and Scott Reed to keep Tubbs Hill in public ownership and make it available for all in our area to enjoy. New memorial stones, with plaques honoring the two men, will be unveiled at the event, which will be part of Art Manley-Scott Reed Day as proclaimed by Mayor Widmyer.
The event will feature live music, free huckleberry ice cream and huckleberry lemonade, short speeches honoring Reed and Manley, and a brief presentation about the new memorial stones, which will be placed at the east and west entrances to the main trail around Tubbs Hill. Members of both men’s families will also be present.
Free and open to the public, this event will pay tribute to the two individuals most responsible for keeping Tubbs Hill in public hands, as well as for their many other contributions to protecting our natural resources and public recreational opportunities, including access to Coeur d’Alene Lake.
