Grizzly Bears: Guardians of the Wilderness
April 24 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
Grizzly bears are one of Montana’s – and North America’s – most iconic wildlife species, but they face many challenges in the modern world. In this lunchtime presentation, you’ll learn about what grizzlies need to thrive, the important contributions they make to ecosystem health, and what it takes to share the land with them.
This is a free, drop-in presentation, but you are welcome to reserve your spot! Register here.
