KETCHUM, IDAHO - Long-time environmental activist, Carole King, and members of the Alliance for the Wild Rockies, were hosts to Rep. Christopher Shays (R-CT) for a four-day tour of the Idaho back country.

The trip gave the Congressman a first hand look of the five distinct ecosystems which would be protected under the Northern Rockies Ecosystem Protection Act (NREPA). The bill has bipartisan support in the House.
