Hudson Skelton from Ovando makes a successful throw to dunk Angela Williams, Ovando Teacher's Aide amidst cheerful threats of "No recess for you!" from Williams.

Country music, a dunk tank and food trucks drew a crowd of almost 300 to the Blackfoot Challenge's block party Aug. 11 in downtown Ovando. Seth Wilson, executive director, welcomed everyone to the celebration of 30 years of partnerships, friendships and conservation.

The Blackfoot Challenge was formed in 1993 following conservation efforts from the 1970s to build partnerships with public agencies. Early on, participants focused on working together to accomplish public access goals. In the '70s the path was paved to develop hunter walk-in areas and public stream access on private lands.
