Science Inquiry Lecture - Yellowstone Wolves: Science and Discovery in the World’s First Ntl. Park

Join MOR and the Gallatin Valley Friends of the Sciences as we explore innovative science topics, their latest developments, and their relevance to society through speaker presentations followed by an engaging question and answer session. 

What have scientists learned from the first 25 years of wolf restoration in Yellowstone National Park?  Dr. Douglas Smith, Senior Wildlife Biologist in Yellowstone, will discuss wolf population dynamics, impacts on elk and bison, wolf hunting and ecosystem impacts, and will offer philosophical ideas about the future of wolves in modern society.
