Explore ‘Wetlands and Wildlife' with NIC at Sandpoint


Join outdoor educational specialist Brian Baxter for the “Wetlands and Wildlife” class Saturday, Sept. 17, at North Idaho College at Sandpoint.

Register by contacting the NIC Workforce Training Center at (208) 769-3333 or request more information by emailing workforcetraining@nic.edu.

This class will examine the diversity of plant and animal species that utilize important wetland habitats. The focus will be on vegetation and habitat components, including toed ungulates such as deer, elk, and moose (as well as aquatic weasels such as otter and mink). The day will be a combination of roundtrip hikes that are less than a mile long and a vehicle road tour.

“We'll also look into reptile and amphibian use as we comb the edges of the muddy ribbons while looking for tracks and sign of these and other species,” Baxter said. “The bird life in these riparian corridors are well worth scoping for, so bring your binoculars and spotting scopes.”

Baxter has degrees in both Forestry and Wildlife Management with more than 40 years of experience working in wildlife fields. Research projects Baxter has been involved with focused on owls, goshawks, wolverines, Canadian lynx, grizzly bears, inland redband trout and North American badgers.
