Wolverine Watchers—Winter is coming!
By Kylie Paul
It’s time for another season of wildlife monitoring in the Bitterroot National Forest, with Defenders of Wildlife and this year, MPG Ranch. The Wolverine Watchers Bitterroot kickoff meeting/party will be Thursday, November 16, 2017 at the Bitterroot Public Library (306 State St., Hamilton, MT) in the downstairs meeting room, from 6:30-8pm. Become a Station Leader, Assistant, or Visitor to establish a monitoring station in the Bitterroot or Sapphire Mountains: Set up early/mid-December or early January, with subsequent site visits by teammates every 3-4 weeks from Jan-April. Expect each visit to be a full day in winter conditions on ski, snowshoe, or Yaktrax. We're super excited for another season and we hope you are, too. We have some fun adjustments this year that you’ll learn about.
Attend the kickoff meeting: Most of you have attended our kickoff parties in previous years, so you know what to expect, and that’s rolling for this year. We’ll have snacks and beverages and a slideshow containing some of last year’s results, changes to this year’s program, and to fill you in on any other pertinent details. Please get there on time as we’ll try to plug away quickly. We'll see you at the Bitterroot Public Library in Hamilton on Thursday, November 16 from 6:30-8 pm
