Sep 20 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Our guest presenter for the Wasatch Packtivists meeting is Lynn Weston, a naturalist with extensive experience teaching at the Yellowstone Institute beginning in 2000. Lynn will present “Unique Stories of the Yellowstone Wolf Reintroduction.” The return of wolves to Yellowstone is clearly one of the most dramatic events in ecological history, but there are many personal, unique and unknown stories during that time that are truly captivating and exciting. Prepare for some surprises as we explore these stories surrounding the reintroduction and issues regarding the Crystal Creek acclamation pen during 1995. Lynn is currently working with an YF Institute class entitled “Wolves: Mythology and Reality.” Lynn became involved in the wolf Environmental Impact Statement in 1994 and was one of the first to assist the researchers and biologists in wolf location, pack behavior, and wolf dynamics in 1996. When not in Yellowstone, Lynn volunteers at the Ogden Nature Center assisting with school programs in field ecology and recently developed a docent program. Free and open to the public.
