Local students completed honors course in Yellowstone National Park
2019 Jul 25
Local students completed honors course titled Multidisciplinary Perspectives: Research Management in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, in Yellowstone National Park, May 13-22, 2019.
This integrative and interdisciplinary course focuses on the often-contentious public issues relevant to the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. Multi-disciplinary readings and site-based explorations provide the foundation to engage in civic issues that include the management of larger grazers (elk and bison) and their predators (wolves and grizzlies), visitor use, invasive species, and fire. To get a variety of perspectives, students met with many stakeholders including a rancher, staff from BLM, staff from Fish and Wildlife Serve, wildlife exploration tour guides and business owners, and a number of private citizens.
