From left, Heather Baker and Hannah Woods, of the Missoula Children’s Theatre, play excitable canines during their interactive performance Monday of ‘Water, Water Everywhere’ at Warren Elementary School, kicking off the 2010 Adopt-A-Species program. The program was created 14 years ago by Carla Wambach, pictured far right, to increase students’ understanding of ecosystems and appreciation of the natural world through the study of Montana wildlife species and their habitat. ‘We love being able to get out of our regular routines where we entertain as well as teach,’ said Baker of her tour with Woods, playing otters, dogs and detectives, to area elementary schools. The play preceeded the unveiling of Warren School’s surprise adopted wildlife species for the year, the black bear. The students will now study and learn about the black bear throughout the school year using information found in a traveling trunk.

Civil Dialogue

We provide this community forum for readers to exchange ideas and opinions on the news of the day. Passionate views, pointed criticism and critical thinking are welcome. Name-calling, crude language and personal abuse are not welcome. Moderators will monitor comments with an eye toward maintaining a high level of civility in this forum. Our comment policy explains the rules of the road for registered commenters. If you receive an error after submitting a comment, please contact us.

If your comment was not approved, perhaps:

    1. You called someone an idiot, a racist, a dope, a moron, etc. Please, no name-calling or profanity (or veiled profanity -- #$%^&*).

    2. You rambled, failed to stay on topic or exhibited troll-like behavior intended to hijack the discussion at hand.

    3. YOU SHOUTED YOUR COMMENT IN ALL CAPS. This is hard to read and annoys readers.

    4. You have issues with a business. Have a bad meal? Feel you were overcharged at the store? New car is a lemon? Contact the business directly with your customer service concerns.

    5. You believe the newspaper's coverage is unfair. It would be better to write the editor at This is a forum for community discussion, not for media criticism. We'd rather address your concerns directly.

    6. You included an e-mail address or phone number, pretended to be someone you aren't or offered a comment that makes no sense.

    7. You accused someone of a crime or assigned guilt or punishment to someone suspected of a crime.

    8. Your comment is in really poor taste.

    9. Don't write a novel. If your comment is longer than the article you're commenting on, you might want to cut it down a bit. Lengthy comments will likely be removed.
