Join Idaho Public Television for a screening of the newest Outdoor Idaho episode "Barns of Idaho", followed by a live conversation with the award-winning filmmaker Forrest Burger and special guests.

Idaho has been built on agriculture and farming, and barns have played a vital role in that success. "Barns of Idaho" reveals some of rural Idaho's most interesting structures and the stories that surround them.

"Barns of Idaho” will air as a half hour episode on October 15, 2020. But, wait, there’s more! We’re also excited to be bringing you a one-hour version for our March 2021 pledge drive. Because, like our guest panelist and preservationist Frank Eld says, “Everyone loves a barn!”

She has been a lifelong advocate for animal rights and is dedicated to being “the voice for those that have none.” Her organization rescues horses from slaughter, rehabilitates them into lifetime homes, educates the community with hands-on horsemanship and animal well-being, and teaches awareness of equine health and welfare. Survivors Rescue Inc. also offers gelding incentives and promotes companion animals in therapy. Some of Dawn’s techniques that were once considered by veterinarians to be “not medically possible” are now being implemented at WSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital. The generous support her organization receives means life for those she rescues.
