Wolves of the North Fork

Glacier Institute
Description:
This course will focus on the recovery and current status of wolves in Glacier National Park and the Northern Rocky Mountains. Since human behavior plays such an integral role in wolf recovery efforts, current wolf politics and western attitudes towards the wolf will be discussed and reviewed. We will spend time looking at and taking short hikes into wolf country on the west side of the Park. By the end of the course you will have a basic knowledge of wolf life history and characteristics, wolf ecology, an introduction to wolf research techniques, and an understanding of the complex politics surrounding wolf recovery in the area. Because of their secretive nature, it is unlikely that we will actually see or hear wolves on our field trip, although we should find evidence of their activities.

Meeting Place: Glacier Park Field Camp Meeting Hall (see campus map).
