If you're hungry for more environmental resources on the Internet, there's a new World Wide Web site that's sure to keep you connected - in more ways than one. The Wild Rockies Slate, launched into cyberspace last December, features up-to-date information on the issues, organizations and ecology of the northern Rocky Mountains. A project of the Wild Rockies Information Network (WIN) of Missoula, Mont., the Slate brings together environmental news and commentary from sources scattered throughout the region. The new site focuses on "issues that are critical to protecting biodiversity, wilderness, and restoration of ecosystems in the Wild Rockies Bioregion." Although the Slate says it's still evolving, it already includes news, an activist resource page, and electronic links to the home pages of regional environmental groups. It may also serve as a model for other bioregional organizations seeking to develop an Internet audience.
