Oregon Wolves: Making a Comeback
Join Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife biologist Russ Morgan for an informative evening about Oregon’s growing wolf population.
Eradicated by bounty hunting in the mid-1900s, gray wolves have begun to make a comeback in Oregon. Now home to 64 known wolves, recovery has seen ups and downs – biologically as well as politically.
As ODFW’s Wolf Program Coordinator, Russ Morgan is at the center of wolf management and recovery. He's been involved in implementing the state’s oft-controversial wolf conservation & management plan, investigated livestock depredations, and has more hands-on experience with Oregon's wolves than anyone else in the state. Working with a wide range of people across the state, as a biologist and state employee, Russ offers a unique perspective on the wolf issue.
Free and open to the public.
