Happy Wolverine Wednesday Everyone!

These last few weeks at the office have flown by, and it seems like the end of the season is just around the corner.  But we’ve got a good month of adventures left, and I’m excited to see what you find at your stations.  As always, The Wolverine Crew is doing great things out there in the backcounty, so thanks to everyone for all your hard work.  Please take the time to read the following updates and let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Reconyx photos and the Wolverine Album:

If you have yet to check out the Wolverine Study 2011-12 album on our FSPW facebook page, I would highly suggest it.  You can view exciting critter photos as well as images of your fellow volunteers at work on their stations.  Follow this link to take you to the FSPW Wolverine Study Album.

Upcoming Events:

March 1: Laughing Dog Brewery, 5pm.  Join the Wolverine Crew for an evening of revelry and story sharing at the Laughing Dog Brewery in Ponderay, ID.  Enjoy hand crafted brews and lively conversation with your fellow volunteers.  Don’t forget to wear your Wolverine Watch hats!

April 1: End of the Season Bash, Eureka Institute Annex, 2-5pm.  Join the entire Wolverine Crew for our end of the season bash at the Eureka Institute Annex in Sandpoint, ID.  This will be a potluck style event with beverages provided by FSPW.  We’ll be taking the Wolverine Crew group photo, handing out our Exceptional Volunteer awards, including the First Annual “Badass Award”, and wrapping up the project with a summary of your efforts this season.  You won’t want to miss this exiting afternoon of wolverine fun!  Please bring a folding chair or campstool and a dish to pass.

The Eureka Institute Annex is located across from Evans Bros. Coffee, at 513 Oak Street in Sandpoint, ID.

Carpooling to the Apr. 1st Bash:

Many folks from the Spokane area have expressed interest in carpooling to Sandpoint for the April 1st Bash.  If you’re interested in ride sharing for this event please let me know, whether you’re in Spokane or another area.  I’ll do my best to connect you with someone from your city/town who wants to carpool.

UMWA group wants to help:

A group of adventurous students from the University of Montana would like to assist in our Wolverine Project before the end of the season.  They would like to help out on the weekend of March 3rd, and I am looking for groups to take them out to stations for the day.  If you are planning to visit your station during that weekend and would enjoy the company of these intrepid academics, please let me know as soon as you can.

Call for Snowmobiles:

One of our station leaders is in need of snowmobile assistance to reach her site.  If anyone has access to a snowmobile, please email Mary Franzel at zipperlee@gmail.com.  She’d really appreciate the lift!

Letters to Zoo Boise:

We are looking for letters of thanks and any other reflections that you as a volunteer would like to share with our major funding organization, Zoo Boise.  We would like to compile these letters and reflections as a way to show our appreciation for their funding and to let them know just how much fun you’ve had participating in this season’s wolverine project.

As always, contact me at mustelids@scotchmanpeaks.org with any questions or concerns.
