Our Vision

Humankind has not woven the web. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web we do to ourselves. All things connect.

IF YOU HAVE FOUND AN ANIMAL IN NEED OF HELP DO NOT EMAIL! PLEASE CALL AND OUR VOLUNTEERS WILL RESPOND THE SAME DAY. IF THE ANIMAL IS SEVERELY INUJRED TAKE IT TO YOUR LOCAL VETERINARY CLINIC THAT TREATS WILD ANIMALS. Do not attempt to rehab the animal yourself...it is illegal & special care is required for long term survival! 

Please support our local sponsors: 

Remember, when out exploring the wild places and spaces of Idaho think A.H.W.F.

 

be AWARE of your surroundings.

  HESITATE before approaching any wild animal.

  WATCH for natural behaviors or signs of distress.

FOLLOW through with appropriate actions. Leave no trace of humans i.e. trash, campfires with hot embers.   

If an animal is in need, please contact the proper authorities - the ‘internet’ does not qualify as an authority on wildlife. Be prepared answer questions and if instructed transport the animal. 

Imagine a Nature Center focused exclusively on the flora and fauna of this region… the first of its kind in the Inland Northwest Panhandle of North Idaho. We are working to build such a place. YOU CAN HELP!
