We are proud to announce that we are again partnering with the Friends of Scotchman Peaks Wilderness and Selkirk Outdoor Leadership and Education (SOLE) this winter to monitor populations of wolverine, lynx and fisher in North Idaho.

Last year more than 140 volunteers helped us set up bait stations and wildlife cameras in the back country. We captured thousands of photos of rare Idaho wildlife last winter and learned a tremendous amount about them. This year's effort will also rely heavily on volunteers. You can read more about last year's success in Brad Smith's blog.

We highly encourage volunteers to attend this training, which will include:

  • A brief overview of this year’s objectives.
  • Group training sessions on how to set up a bait station. We are doing a few things different this year, so we encourage volunteers to attend even if they participated last season.
  • An optional winter safety/avalanche session for anyone who’s interested.

If you participate in the full training session, we plan to conclude by 4:30 pm. 

If you are interested in participating and would like to learn more, please contact Brad Smith by phone or email, using the contact information above.

The Sandpoint Ranger Station is located at 1602 Ontario Street.

We hope to see you there!

Our Heritage of Special Places Could Disappear

That's right. In today's world, westerners periodically decry federal control of our public lands. They forget that those lands belong to all Americans—not just Idahoans and not just those who would like to sell them off to the highest bidder. Let your delegation know that public lands should remain in public hands!
