Idahoans care about their wildlife. It's always uplifting to me to see a group of volunteers taking time to show their appreciation and volunteer at events such as sagebrush and bitterbrush planting to restore wildlife habitat.
Volunteers recently planted over the Minidoka complex fire at Big Cottonwood Wildlife Management Area. The Times-News story and photo gallery are now online.
