Y2Y Speaker Series— Crossing the Flathead: The Wolverine Way

Feb 23 2012 - 7:00pm - 8:30pm

Presentation – Stories – Discussion – Door Prizes

Join National Geographic explorer and author of ‘The Wolverine Way' Douglas Chadwick for an evening of compelling storytelling about the fierce, feisty and endangered wolverine.

For the better part of five years Doug volunteered with the Glacier Wolverine Project studying the elusive animal. Across snowy trails, ice and mountains Doug witnessed the wolverine's limitless spirit as it effortlessly completed a 1,500 m technical climb in only 90-minutes, and boldly stood up to a 500lb grizzly – and won!

Doug's alluring stories remind us that although fearless the wolverine is at-risk and sensitive to climate change. Its survival demands large, wild landscapes, and adds to the call for wildlife corridors, like the Flathead Valley, which connect existing habitat.

Through this entertaining, educational and inspirational presentation, you'll discover one of Canada's most mysterious animals and the campaign to protect its home – the Flathead River Valley.
