August 27, 2014: Hayden Park News 20

Dear Friends:

This is to correct an error in the previous News (19). Jim Pease's program on birds will be Wednesday, September 10 at 5:30 pm.

The reason it is Wednesday, not Thursday, is because the annual Paul Errington Memorial Lecture is Thursday evening at 7 pm in the Great Hall of the Memorial Union. The speaker will be Douglas Smith. Doug is a senior wildlife biologist with the National Park Service and has been involved with wolves in Yellowstone since their controversial reintroduction to the park in 1992. He joined the Yellowstone Gray Wolf Restoration Project in 1994 as a research technician and now serves as the project leader, supervising research on ecosystem responses to the predator and educating people on wildlife conservation and endangered species preservation. Prior to Yellowstone, Smith worked with wolves on Michigan's Isle Royale and in Minnesota. He is the author of Decade of the Wolf: Returning the Wild to Yellowstone.

This promises to be a very interesting lecture.
