Wolves in Utah
Join the Swaner EcoCenter on Monday, Sept, 20, at 6 p.m. for a presentation about wolves in Utah. In 2002, the first gray wolf seen in Utah in 70 years was captured. Since then friction has occurred between those who want wolves established in the state and those who want Utah to remain free of wolves. "Cost of Freedom" is a short film that shows the intensity of the passions that motivate all sides of the wolf issue. Following the film, Utah State University professor Dr. Robert Schmidt will discuss what is known about wolf recolonization, attitudes towards wolves in Utah, and potential wolf management strategies. Reservations are required and the cost is $4 for members/$8 for non-members. RSVP to Savannah@SwanerEcoCenter.org or 649-1767 ext. 113.
