Support Wildland Firefighters

Join the Idaho Museum of Natural History on Idaho State University campus Saturday, August 12th, to help our wildland firefighters.

All admissions on Saturday will be donated to the Wildland Firefighter Foundation (WFF), a non-profit organization that helps families of firefighters injured or killed in the line of duty. WFF honors and acknowledges past, present, and future members of the wildland firefighting community, and partners with private and interagency organizations to bring recognition to wildland firefighters.

While at the museum, see how firefighters protect Idaho lands in Living with Fire. Wildfires are a natural part of Idaho’s arid landscape. For as long as forests and grasslands have covered the earth’s surface, seasonal fires have consumed, renewed and shaped them. Plants and animals of our region have adopted ways to live with fire, but changes to fire frequency and the ever-expanding human population into wild spaces brings new challenges.

Also, come learn while you play with our popular traveling exhibit, Be the Dinosaur, here for its final month. This groundbreaking fusion of arcade and traditional exhibits features full-size dinosaur bones, a paleontology field station, a Safari Jeep and more. Visitors of all ages can enter into the largest and most complex restoration of an extinct ecosystem ever created.

We all want to do our part during fire season. Come to IMNH and help support our firefighters this Saturday, August 12 from 9 am to 5 pm.
