Fifty Years of Wild Rivers!

Celebrating the 50th Anniversary
of the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act

Hallway Art Exhibit through November 5th

Idaho has a rich legacy of permanently protected free-flowing river corridors. When Congress passed the Wild & Scenic Rivers Act in October 1968, the Lochsa, Selway and Middle Fork Clearwater, along with the Middle Fork Salmon, and a few other rivers in the United States, were the first in the country to receive designation. Since then the Saint Joe, Rapid River, Salmon River (main stem), Snake River (main stem) and other rivers throughout Idaho have been protected. Today the National Wild & Scenic Rivers System encompasses over 200 protected rivers, with over 12,000 miles of designated waterways.

Friends of the Clearwater, along with local artist Bobbi Kelly and the students at Palouse Prairie Charter School, have produced watercolors for this special exhibit. It was featured at the Reflections Gallery on the University of Idaho campus during August and will be in the hallway gallery at the 1912 Center through November 5th. Also featured are wonderful regional photographers who have shared their photography in this exhibit, generously funded by the Latah County Community Foundation. FOC also wishes to thank Lucinda Simpson and Elias Pinkham for the hand-carved canoe paddle and Hannah Kroese with HK Creative for beautiful graphic design work.

So stop by and learn more about our free flowing river heritage in Idaho at this exhibit. A celebration of the work will be held in conjunction with Friends of the Clearwater's annual meeting, held in the Great Room on Saturday evening, November 3rd.

What's Next?

Time to head upstairs!


The facility now has all the windows replaced and it looks beautiful thanks to our fantastic community donors' support! Windows may still be adopted for a $1,912 donation that may be made all at once or over time. Leave your own legacy at the 1912 Center with an engraved plaque on the window you choose and help the next construction project at the facility. We may look all renovated from the outside but there are 20,000 square feet of space to get restored upstairs in the building to create more gathering spaces for our community.

The roof and skylights were replaced during a project over the summer months of 2018 and the building is water tight and ready for winter! We are in the process of raising $1 million in funds to be able to complete the second-floor renovations that will include a small auditorium, a community living room, an historic classroom, bathrooms and more. Come check the space out on a tour during one of our Winter Markets so you can see first-hand what we are raising money to do.

Questions about the renovation project? Please contact Jenny Kostroff in the 1912 Center office at (208) 669-2249 or e-mail the 1912 Center at 1912Center@gmail.com and she will happily share with you what is happening at the building. Thank you so much for your support and shared excitement for getting more space renovated inside the 1912 Center beginning in the next two years!

In the meantime you can visit our Facebook page for updates on happenings in the building and photo albums of past events in the spaces to help you plan your next event at the 1912 Center.
