Hey Wolverine Volunteers!
Good news everyone! On Monday, the US Fish and Wildlife Service proposed to add the wolverine to the list of threatened species under the Endangered Species Act! Public input is being sought. Three informational sessions and public hearing will be held on this proposed rule. For more information check out the FWS website!
March 3rd is also our End-of-Season Party! Come celebrate with all of your fellow volunteers! We’ll kick off the festivities at 2:00pm at Eichardt’s located at 212 Cedar St. in downtown Sandpoint. We’ll share a summary of project results, hand out awards to exceptional volunteers, and enjoy the stories of backcountry adventures from our wolverine stations. We’ll wrap up by 5:00pm with the hope that we’ll see everyone again next season!
We want your nominations for the 2nd Annual Badass Award! This award will be given to the volunteer whose backcountry efforts this season were super-human and over the top. You can nominate your station leader, you can nominate a fellow volunteer, heck, you can even nominate yourself! Send the name of the nominee along with a one-sentence description of why they are this season’s “Badass” to firstname.lastname@example.org by February 27th to have them entered! We’ll select the top 5 suggestions and descriptions to be voted on by the Wolverine Crew before our March 3rd bash!
That’s all for now! Till next week!
