Adventurers and Scientists for Conservation, a Bozeman-based non-profit, is looking for outdoor enthusiasts who want to help protect grizzly bear habitat. ASC will lead three tracking sessions in the Centennial Mountains.

“We hope to document the presence of grizzly bears in what has been deemed one the most important wildlife corridors in North America,” said Gregg Trienish, ASC’s Executive Director. “If we can show a presence, we have a commitment from the BLM that necessary actions will be taken to protect this area from development.”

The first training session, Aug. 20 – 21, will provide interested citizens the necessary skills to help with data collection. “You need no science background, only the desire to make a difference,” Treinish said.

Treinish founded ASC in late January 2011, and the organization now has more than 30 expeditions throughout the world focused on everything from algae to wolverines. This project is supported in part by the NRDC.
