(Lander, WY) – Access to fun, free, community-focused science communication is available the first Tuesday of each month at the Coalter Loft in the Lander Bar via Wyoming Wildlife Federation’s Wildlife on Tap. This event focuses on a new scientist for each conference as they share their work on Wyoming’s wild creatures and habitats.
The upcoming event, “Invasive Species: The Big Cheater,” will take place at 7:00 pm on December 7, 2021. Host will be Robert Shellard of Wyoming Weed and Pest. Robert will share his experience in combating invasive plant species in Wyoming’s wilderness and how they relate to management policy and wildfires.
It is important to have community members who enjoy protecting and conserving wildlife, and WWF looks forward to welcoming this core to Wildlife on Tap as we come together to learn more about wildlife conservation and the celebrate. Partners sharing their research in this project span a variety of topics ranging from sagebrush restoration to predator-prey cycles of moose and wolves in Yellowstone. They also represent a variety of land use planning organizations and agencies. These events are short, free, and easy to understand for all ages and backgrounds.
The Wyoming Wildlife Federation has been putting boots on the ground for wildlife conservation for 83 years. In 2021 alone, the Federation helped protect 130 miles of critical migration corridor, protect the sage grouse hunt, upgrade 7 miles of fencing on migration paths, welcome more than 100 children to camps summer educational programs and to provide additional funding for Access Yes! Program, part of which will be allocated to wildlife viaducts.
