The Boise River has become a symbol f or quality of life in the capital city: a clear, cold river harboring herons, rainbow trout, waterfowl and eagles in the shadow of corporate office buildings and private homes. Yet urban activities require some compromise in order to maintain a healthy river ecosystem. Finding that balance of compromise has become a major area of contention as Boise booms in the '90s. In this issue of FOCUS we examine this river, which is a reflection of our caring capacity. Glenn Oakley cover photo.
