Mr Scotchman Was Seen

Posted on Tuesday, April 5th, 2011 by »

Mr Scotchman seems to have become a travellin’ goat, at times he’s been seen roaming far from home.  He always comes back, but he has bees seen in some mighty unusual places!

Maybe you’ve seen him somewhere odd or interesting.  Maybe you’ve even helped him get there.  It might be Boise, Boston or Kalamazoo (OK, someone challanged me to use Kalamazoo in a blog about Wilderness in Montana and Idaho).  And that is the point – Wilderness is for us all! Wilderness connects and interconnects with all people and places.  It takes a pretty powerful goat to remind us of that.

You can help Mr Scotchman on his mission. If you have taken him somewhere unusual or you have seen someone else take him somewhere unusual, take a photo and send it to us.

Send us you photos of Mr Scotchman! Take your “Scotchmans” shirts or hats to an unusual location, near or far. Be creative. Take him yourself, or send him to a friend; but send US your photo, with a description of where MR S was seen, who took the photo and anyone in the photo and we will post it here. Send to
