Thu, April 18, 2013

Cline Library Auditorium


Thursday, April 18th, 4pm, Cline Library Assembly Hall.

Author Mary Ellen Hannibal traveled from Canada to Mexico to research her new book, The Spine of the Continent, about saving Rocky Mountain biodiversity in the face of climate change and habitat fragmentation. From eminent scientists hammering out the tenants of conservation biology, to a hairdresser who relocates beaver, Hannibal has entertaining — and important — stories to tell about creatures like wolves, grizzlies, pika and jaguar, the history of how our landscape came to its sorry state today, and what can be done to heal it. The presentation includes a slide show and book signing.
