An Oral History of the Morley Nelson Snake River Birds of Prey National Conservation Area.


Episode 13: Tracy Andrus

Tracy Andrus is the middle daughter of former Idaho governor and secretary of the interior Cecil Andrus. Tracy has a wealth of amazing stories about growing up in the Andrus household and traveling to Washington, D.C. for her father’s term as the Interior Secretary. She has become an advocate for public lands in her own right in her role as the president of the Andrus Center for Public Policy at Boise State University, and her insight into the processes behind the establishment of the Snake River Birds of Prey NCA is invaluable.
