We are the Friends of the LPO!
Join us for our Spring Wildlife Program on Friday March 31st.
This year we are privileged to have Rebecca Watters speak to us on Wolverines.
Rebecca Watters is the executive director of the Wolverine Foundation, and the founder and director of the Mongolian Wolverine Project. Born and raised outside of Boston, MA, Ms. Watters has a BA in anthropology from St. Lawrence University, and a master’s degree from the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies. She served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Mongolia from 2000-2002, working on environmental education and wildlife research, and worked for two years as an environmental consultant on community-based conservation programs in Cambodia. She has directed small-scale camera and genetics studies of wolverines’ in Montana, and her work in Mongolia represents the first ever attempt to document the species in that country. She has chronicled her work on wolverines since 2009 at the Wolverine Blog. When she is not in northern Mongolia, she’s based in Bozeman, Montana.
This informative evening is sponsored by the Friends of the Little Pend Oreille National Wildlife Refuge.
Doors open 6:30 pm for refreshments and to view the displays in the lobby. The program starts at 7 pm. This is a free family-oriented event and door prizes will be awarded!
