College to take over former Aryan Nations property

COEUR DALENE North Idaho College is preparing the former Aryan Nations compound for use as an outdoor laboratory.

The land now is a field of dead grass and weeds amid bushes, stumps and broken picnic tables.

But Michael Burke, president of North Idaho College, says it’s a beautiful piece of property that is being put to a higher use.

The 20-acre site in Hayden Lake was once home to the Aryan Nations, a white supremacist organization. Richard Butler, the group’s leader, lost the property after along with a $6.3 million civil suit.

Greg Carr, president of the Carr Foundation, purchased the property and donated it to the North Idaho College Foundation.

This spring, the college plans to begin using the property to teach biology, ecology, geology.
