Leaves drop from aspens. Motels are vacant. Does Dubois go quiet? All is not as it may seem ….
Here’s the center’s new director, Sara Domek, clearly delighted by the success of the event.
Dubois has one of the largest year-round populations of these rare sheep, she told me. The Bighorn Sheep Center, which supports research and education into the bighorn sheep, is one of the town’s main attractions for visitors.
Sara told me that events like this bring in about a fifth of the center’s funding. The rest comes from foundations.
