It’s Wolverine Wednesday!

Posted on Wednesday, December 26th, 2012

I hope that everyone enjoyed an fun-filled holiday! If you’re like me you ate way too much at the dinner table this year and are looking for a way to burn off the extra calories. Never fear, it’s wolverine photography season! Time to strap on those snowshoes/skies, throw a frozen beaver in your pack and head out into the wild.

Saturday, January 5th, we will be having a volunteer training day. This training will be in partnership with the Idaho Conservation League and Selkirk Outdoor Leadership and Education Inc. It will be held at the Sandpoint Ranger Station (same place it was last year) at 12:30 pm. Attending this training day is highly encouraged for the station leaders, but all volunteers are welcome. We’ll begin with a brief overview of this year’s objectives, and then break into groups to learn how to set up a station. There are a few things that are different so we like to encourage leaders to attend even if they were expert bait hangers last season. There will also be an optional winter safety/avalanche session for anyone who’s interested. The training is estimated to be over by 4:30 pm. If you’d like to be a station leader please email me at lauren@scotchmanpeaks.org to let me know if you’ll be available January 5th for the volunteer training!

Tuesday, January 8th, come join us upstairs at Eichardt’s for Gianna Savoie’s Emmy nominated documentary “Wolverine: Chasing the Phantom.” This is a great opportunity to get out and meet other project volunteers while enjoying this beautiful film about wolverines. This event is for any volunteers: returnees and newbies. Please feel free to invite anyone who’s interested in the project. No host bar. Social hour begins at 6:30 pm and the movie will begin at 7:30 pm.

And the fun begins! I hope everyone enjoyed a wonderful holiday with friends and family. Please email me at mustelids@scotchmanpeaks.org with any questions!
