Sharon Hubler

I am an Idaho native with roots that are close by; i.e., my grandparents and parents coming from Notus and Parma, respectively. Also, I have been an active board member of the Boise River Trail Coalition and F.A.C.T.S. Our main artery has been the Boise River for these projects; and there have been shared and co-operative ventures in this process. I am looking forward to becoming a more active Advisory Board member of the National Association of Park Foundations (N.A.P.F.)
