Doug Smith, senior wildlife biologist at Yellowstone National Park, will speak on March 19 at 6:30 p.m. in the Lovell Visitor Center in Lovell, Wyoming.
Smith will talk about his research on wolves, elk and birds in Yellowstone, the importance of public lands and working across transboundary habitats. The wildlife that live in Yellowstone do not recognize park or agency habitat management boundaries. Smith has spent much of his career monitoring these movements and working with agencies and private landowners to conserve transboundary habitats.
A bus will be available to carry participants from Powell to the talk thanks to Powell Valley Community Education and through a grant from the Wyoming Humanities Council. The bus will leave from the Yellowstone Building parking lot at 5:45 p.m. the evening of the program. If you are interested in riding the bus contact Leslie Bigham at 307-754-6469.
