Memorials for Sandy Edmiston

Sandra May Edmiston died in a rock climbing accident near Moose, Wyoming on August 1, 2005 and the world has not been the same since. She left a big void that others will have to work at filling. We are trying hard to do that at the Field Station . . . and we need help.
Sandy had enjoyed the Pacific Northwest in an internship for the summer of 2003 in Olympic National Park and, as usual, made friends wherever she went. Two of them, identified as Lynne and Bill, wrote this in an Internet blog dedicated Sandy's life: "I believed in her power to save the world, and the manner of her death reminds me of the nurturing arms of mother earth, reaching out to the child she loved.
