The wolves in Yellowstone annually attract thousands of visitors hoping to see and hear these top predators. Are wolves as welcomed beyond the park’s borders? Find out by contrasting the major social, economic, and management issues encountered on different landscapes with different management agencies. You’ll observe wolves inside the park while discussing research and ecology, and you’ll meet local people- such as ranchers and outfitters– whose livelihoods are affected by wolves. Explore this challenging topic with instructors who work inside and outside the park with wolves and the people they affect. Be prepared with very warm boots and clothing for extended periods outdoors on cold winter days.

Quote

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."

~ Edward Abbey
