Nature Night: Oregon, Decidedly Wolf Land Lecture

Friday, October 07, 2016, 07:00pm - 08:30pm
 
This Nature Night will take place in the lower ballroom at Montgomery Park. Suggested donation: $5

Gray Wolf by USFWSWith two new Oregon gray wolf pups born just in July, wolves are back on the minds of Oregonians. Through the Oregon Wolf Plan, this apex predator has returned as far as the Southern Cascades. As one of the most stigmatized species world-wide, their recovery is nothing short of miraculous! Join Portland Audubon in welcoming Carter Niemeyer, retired biologist and wolf trapper, back to our Speakers Series to talk about cutting-edge research, wolf ecology, and the vital role the species play in the health of local ecosystems.

Carter’s talk will take us along his journey with wolves, and he’ll share with us new and exciting research. Much like his book Wolf Land, which Carter will be signing afterwards, his talk will touch on field stories and his invocation for wild places. Carter's mantra is, "Wolves are here to stay" and we need to learn to live with them.

Carter Niemeyer is a widely recognized expert on wolves. He is an Iowa native, and has a masters degree in wildlife biology from Iowa State University, but in 1973 he took a job as a government trapper for USDA Wildlife Services in Montana, and ended up staying - for 26 years. His work with wild wolves began there nearly 10 years before reintroduction (Yellowstone NP and Central Idaho). He found himself on the reintroduction team in Canada and later was the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's wolf recovery coordinator in Idaho (2000-2006). He retired from the feds and now is a strong voice for wolf conservation, a consultant, and an author (Wolfer in 2010 and Wolf Land in 2016), writing about his eye-popping experiences working with wolves in the northern Rocky Mountains. He has more than 300 wolf captures to his name, most recently for graduate students at Washington State University. He lives in Boise with his wife (the book editor!) Jenny.
