The interests of man's best friend were clearly represented today at Healthwise, one the city's most dog-friendly employers.
The Land Trust of the Treasure Valley launched a fund-raising campaign to purchase Harrison Hollow in Boise's lower foothills. Tim Breuer, executive director of the Land Trust, said the campaign had already achieved 60 percent of its goal with significant donations from the J.A. and Kathryn Albertson Foundation, Southwest Idaho Mountain Bike Association, the North End Neighborhood Association and Healthwise.
"I like to have business meetings while walking the trail," Healthwise CEO Don Kemper told Citydesk. "We've made key decisions while walking through the area."
The trust hopes to raise the necessary funds by early December in order to close the deal to purchase 58 acres of the prime open space from Highland, Inc., the company that has owned the land for nearly half a century.
