    Idaho is trying to pass a bill to cull 90% of their wolf population. Please help stop this wanton destruction of a keystone species due to ignorance. Domestic dogs kill more livestock annually than wolves. https://www.change.org/p/idaho-senate-protect-wolf-populations-in-idaho?recruiter=1902207&recruited_by_id=df18fd30-65cf-11e4-84e2-53b9a739869e&utm_source=share_petition&utm_medium=copylink&utm_campaign=psf_combo_share_initial

    I'm happy to say that I have found our lessons and discussions sticking with me this first week out of the course and imagine that it will continue to be an educational experience that informs my decision making going forward.

    Found this virtual water calculator. It was surprising to see the water footprint we have. It was still under the national average for our household size, but I thought it would be lower. It's surprising how fast it adds up. Definitely some opportunities for improvement!
