How can one put a realistic face on an animal that has been demonized and villainized for hundreds of years? Jim and Jamie Dutcher have, and they continue to do so as they travel the nation sharing their unique account of how they lived with wolves. Partnering with the National Geographic Society and speaking on their own, they have given more than 200 presentations about the Sawtooth Pack and other wolves they have come to know. After speaking to students, ranchers, wolf biologists, elk hunters, and at universities, symphony halls, country clubs and sold-out audiences around the country and beyond, Jim and Jamie will bring their adventure home to Ketchum.
The Wisdom of Wolves: Lessons from the Sawtooth Pack is a new multi-media presentation adapted from one of the Dutchers’ newest books on wolves, and enhanced with stunning photographs and clips from three of their Emmy award-winning films.
Join us for this free, public presentation from Jim and Jamie Dutcher, who began their work as wildlife filmmakers. Before wolves were reintroduced to Yellowstone National Park and Central Idaho in 1995, the Dutchers released the groundbreaking documentary film, Wolf: Return of A Legend. This film and their others that followed about the Sawtooth Pack introduced an important element of public education to the wolf recovery effort, sharing the story of wolves as they had never been seen or understood before.
Books will be available for sale and signing, courtesy of Chapter One Books.
This event will be livestreamed and archived for future viewing on our LIVESTREAM PAGE.
In 2006 Jim and Jamie created Living with Wolves, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to educational outreach and research. Living with Wolves works to build tolerance that can lead to coexistence between people and wolves sharing the same land.
