Film Screening Thursday, February 2nd, 6:00 pm | Burke Auditorium

Come for a sneak preview of The Range Riders, an independent documentary film directed by Susan Kucera features several people in the ranching world dealing with the expanding wolf population, particularly in Washington, Montana and Wyoming. One of the main characters is a rancher (Kathy) in eastern Washington who is nervous about her animals as wolves are recolonizing. Others are ranchers or range riders who are learning to coexist with large carnivores. Featuring special guest Matt Barnes, of People and Carnivores, who worked with a number of ranchers and managers on the Union Pass Project. Matt will be available after the screening for questions.
