Long a magnificent symbol of the wild, grizzly bears are perhaps the most controversial species in North America. In Grizzly Wars, David Knibb explores the policy and political issues involved in managing and attempting to save any species, especially one that can pose a grave danger to human beings. The author looks at the grizzly bear recovery areas on both sides of the border, from the North Cascades to the Northern Rockies.
A resident of the Seattle area, David Knibb has a background in environmental law, forestry, and wildlife management. An activist on resource conservation and environment issues in the Mountain West for some forty-five years, he is also the author of Backyard Wilderness, a chronicle of the congressional battle over the Alpine Lakes Wilderness in Washington’s Cascades.
The event will be Tuesday evening, Sept 15, starting at 7:00 PM. It will be in room 185 of Benson Earth Sciences at the CU Environmental Center in Boulder. The CU Wilderness Study Group and the Sierra Club Indian Peaks Group will be co-sponsoring this event.
