The Wolves of Yellowstone: A Chat with an Expert Naturalist!
May 25 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
“For the strength of the Pack is the Wolf, and the strength of the Wolf is the Pack” – Rudyard Kipling
Join Explore Up Close and Audra Conklin Taylor of Lamar Valley Touring for a special virtual event, as she shares her passion and knowledge about the wolves of Yellowstone.
Yellowstone’s Lamar Valley lies in the northeastern corner of the park, along the Lamar River. This is called “America’s Serengeti” for its impressive populations of large animals. Many can be spotted from the road – in some cases, with a bit of patience, luck, and a good spotting scope! Two major wolf packs roam here, as well as grizzly bears, coyotes, and large herds of bison and pronghorn. Bald eagles and osprey nest here, and the valley’s sweeping, glacially carved landscapes make you catch your breath.
Audra Conklin Taylor is the founder of Lamar Valley Touring, and specializes in guided touring of “America’s Serengeti” for people of all ages. What was supposed to be a “brief hiatus” from the East Coast turned into seven years of unexpected and enchanting events that led to immersing herself into all things “Yellowstone” as a researcher, educator and guide. She is Wilderness First Aid and CPR Certified, is a graduate of the International Guide Academy and Leave No Trace Certified.
All proceeds from this virtual event will benefit two advocacy groups that do tremendous work to protect the wolves of Yellowstone: 06 Legacy and The National Wolfwatcher Coalition. Thank you for your donations!
