    Laurie is always nearby to help wolf watchers when you visit YNP. She is very friendly and will share her spotting scope with anyone interested. Her Subaru wagon is usually a good one to spot, along with Rick McIntyre’s yellow Pathfinder.

    Laurie is always very helpful and willing to fill us in on what has been going on in the park. It is nice to see her get some recognition for this!

    Laurie is a great ambassador for The Yellowstone Natioal Park Wolf Project. Her devotion to the wolves and Yellowstone National Park helps new time watchers and veteran watchers attain a new level of understanding of the compex wolf program. We are glad to see her get recognition for all her efforts.

    thats the kinda stuff that bothers me. People spotting for other peoples cars to find wolves. I. E. the subaru wagon or the yellow this or that. Look for wolves don’t stalk the people. By the way, its not a pathfinder anyway. Great for Laurie

    Hi Bigbrowntrout – Easy does it. When my hectic life finally allows me a few days in my favorite place on earth, the Lamar Valley, I drive in wide eyed for the yellow whatever it is, that Rick drives. Plus he’s always glad to see me.! Laurie has shared her scope with me on more than one occasion so that I could get mine lined up. Does this guarantee a siting? No way! I would love nothing more than to be in Lamar so much people scope out my car so they might be blessed with their own once in a lifetime chance to see a wolf in the wilds of Yellowstone. Then, when they go back home they can share their great and successful experience with all their friends and family. Getting good wolf education from the “wolf watchers” in Lamar, might actually lead to better wolf management policies all over the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."
