NEWS and EVENTS
Our condolences and prayers go out to the Vandal Student's families due to the recent tragic events that occurred in Moscow, ID and also those at the University of Virginia.
The gray wolf species in the Northern Rockies has faced its most severe threat in a century. While a lawsuit recently restored protections for wolves in 44 states, due to a series of administrative and legislative maneuvers over the past decade, wolves remain unprotected in Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, and portions of several adjacent states. It is time for these Northern Rockies states to end their hostility toward wolves.
