      IBO's 2nd Annual Women in the Wilderness Retreat!

      Come join us for an exclusive women's-only event as we mingle under the fir trees atop Lucky Peak and experience incredible local wines, while celebrating friendships and creating one-of-a-kind memories.   Tickets will be sold by the tent space NOT per person, which is great because the more friends you invite to fill up the tent, the more cost effective your registration becomes!  Space is  limited- so don’t hesitate to start gathering up your girlfriends ;)  If you need help deciding the best tent options for you and your besties, contact event coordinator Heather Hayes: heathermhayes@boisestate.edu .   A guaranteed ‘girl’s-night-out’ like no other, the “Women in the Wilderness Retreat" will blend together the passions of the outdoors, wine and birds. Let's face it, our lives just keep getting busier, making it even more crucial to take time for what is important- ourselves and our relationships. We invite you to get re-connected with your closest friends!    When is the last time you have had a full 24 hours free of schedules, commitments and worries???  If you are struggling to remember, this retreat is a must!!    You are invited to participate in our silent auction, enjoy an evening owl presentation and of course join us in owl banding! You will follow the scientists through the entire banding process AND have the chance to release any owls we catch back into the wild. The excitement continues the following day with songbird and raptor banding- experiences you and your friends will not soon forget!   For those that would love to take their relaxation to another level, you are welcome to participate in a complimentary yoga session Sunday with a local certified yoga instuctor offering time for gentle stretching, breathing and reflection. This class is accessible to everyone, any age- no prior experience necessary!   There is a limit of 4 ladies per personal tent and for those that don't want to bring their personal tent- how about the convenience of one of our two canvas wall tents? We have one wall tent available that holds a maximum of 4 ladies, and one wall tent that holds a maximum of 6 ladies. No set-up required, just drop your gear and go!   Attendees are invited to begin arriving at 3pm to start setting up camp, with the event kicking off at 5pm. Light snacks will be provided and we welcome you to bring any additional food for meals throughout your stay. Complimentary water will be provided for the evening, but be sure to bring ample amounts of water for your specific needs throughout the rest of your stay. (For first-time visitors to the Peak, there is no electricity or running water)   Due to our limited space- those bringing personal tents will be asked to breakdown camp by 11:00 am Sunday morning as we will be using the main camping pad area for the yoga session.    Please note that due to the nature of this event, all attendees will be required to camp overnight- no exceptions. Invitation for those 21 and older.
