The Wood River Wolf Project: 12 years protecting both sheep and wolves in the Wood River Valley
Join us for an evening learning about a local project that has gained international interest through its pioneering nonlethal measures protecting domestic livestock and wild predators like wolves. Project leaders Larry Schoen, former Blaine County Commissioner, and Suzanne Stone, project co-founder, will explain why sheep losses to wolves in the local area are among the lowest in the state and how this benefits both local agriculture and our resident wolf packs.
The Wood River Wolf Project has just quietly completed its 12 year in the valley while serving as a model for livestock and wildlife conflict management across the west and around the world. Find out how you can become involved in this effort and why it matters to our ranching, ecological and tourism efforts.
