The largest and most popular fish viewing window at the MK Nature Center in Boise has received a new life with an aquatic ecology-themed mural.
Idaho artist Marcus Pierce was chosen to design and paint the mural. Working for several months under tarps and plastic, the mural will be unveiled to the public on First Thursday, May 2, with festivities beginning at 5:30 p.m.
The project was made possible by the Idaho Fish & Wildlife Foundation, Mrs. Willow A. Hahn, The Prestel Family, Lori Schram, Mick and Joey Chase, the Pierose/Leasure families as a gift to their parents, and the Sawtooth Fish Hatchery.
