COEUR D’ALENE – 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.
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.
