Wildlife & Humans Together in the 21st Century Lecture Series Continues with Wild Horse Island Big Horn Sheep Management

Nat Res Fish Wildlife Game bannerFlathead Valley Community College’s (FVCC) Natural Resources program and Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks (FWP) have joined forces to present lecture series, “Wildlife & Humans Together in the 21st Century,” on selected Thursday evenings at 7 p.m. through December at FVCC. The series is free and open to the public.

 

The series will continue September 10 with a presentation on Wild Horse Island bighorn sheep management. Managing bighorns on Wild Horse Island is complex, considering that they are isolated genetically and the island is a primitive Montana State Park. The island is located on Flathead Lake within the boundaries of the Flathead Indian Reservation. FWP Region One Wildlife Manager Neil Anderson and State Park Manager Amy Grout will team up for a fascinating look at these magnificent animals.

 

The lecture will begin at 7 p.m. and will take place in the large community meeting room inside the Arts & Technology building on FVCC’s Kalispell campus. The presentation will last approximately an hour and will follow with a 20-minute question and answer period.

 

A complete schedule of lectures is found in the attached brochure; the schedule is also available by contacting FWP (752-5501) or FVCC (756-3946), or by visiting www.fvcc.edu, or http://fwp.mt.gov/regions/r1/. “Wildlife & Humans Together in the 21st Century” is supported by FVCC, FWP and a grant from the AT&T Technology and Environment Awards program.
