Please join Sacajawea Audubon on Monday, February 11th for an interesting and fact-based program on the wolf issue, presented by Norm Bishop.
Norm, who has been interpreting wolves and their recovery in the Yellowstone area for 27 years, will briefly review a number of recent studies, many of which were enabled by wolf restoration, that may inform the issue of wolf management in the greater Yellowstone area. He will be open to questions following the talk.
Norm Bishop was a national park ranger for 36 years. He was the principal interpreter of wolves and their restoration at Yellowstone National Park 1985-1997. For his educational work on wolves, he received a USDI citation for meritorious service. He also received the National Parks and Conservation Association's 1988 Stephen T. Mather Award, the Greater Yellowstone Coalition's 1991 Stewardship Award, and the Wolf Education and Research Center's 1997 Alpha Award. He led many field courses on wolves for the Yellowstone Association Institute until 2005. Norm volunteers as the greater Yellowstone region field representative for the International Wolf Center. He serves on the boards of the Wolf Recovery Foundation, Wild Things Unlimited, and the Gallatin-Park County Chapter of Montana Conservation Voters. He is also on the advisory board of Living with Wolves.
