#WhatsHappening: ‘Invasive Species: The Big Cheater’ on tap December 7th

(Lander, WY) – Access to fun, free, and community-centered science communication is available the first Tuesday of each month at Coalter Loft in the Lander Bar through Wyoming Wildlife Federation’s Wildlife on Tap. This event focuses on a new scientist for each talk as they share their work impacting Wyoming wild creatures and habitats.

The upcoming event, “Invasive Species: The Big Cheater,” will be at 7 pm on December 7th, 2021. The host will be Robert Shellard from Wyoming Weed and Pest. Robert will share his experience combating invasive plant species in Wyoming’s wildlands, and how they relate to management policy and wildfires.

Having folks in the community who enjoy protecting and conserving wildlife is important, and WWF looks forward to greeting that core at Wildlife on Tap as we come together to learn about and celebrate wildlife conservation. Partners sharing their research in this project are on diverse topics ranging from sagebrush scrub restoration to predator-prey cycles of moose and wolves in Yellowstone. They also represent a variety of organizations and land-use agencies. These events are short, free, and easy to understand for all ages and backgrounds.

Wyoming Wildlife Federation has put boots on the ground for wildlife conservation for 83 years. In 2021 alone, the Federation helped protect 130 miles of critical migration corridor, protected sage-grouse hunting, upgraded 7 miles of fencing on migration paths, hosted over 100 children at educational summer camps, and helped pass additional funding for WGFD’s Access Yes! Program, some of which will be allocated to wildlife overpasses.
