Lyceum Lecture Series: The Rise of Wolf 8

October 28, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Hear the true story of Yellowstone’s remarkable alpha.

Join world-renowned wolf researcher Rick McIntyre as he shares the gripping true story of one of the first wolves to roam Yellowstone Park in more than 60 years. McIntyre will also share fascinating insights into wolf behavior and sign copies of his new book The Rise of Wolf 8.

Here is the incredible story of a wolf who rose from runt to alpha male in Yellowstone National Park — once home to an abundance of wild wolves that were killed off by park rangers in the 1920s and brought back by rangers decades later to balance the park’s ecosystem, the first wolves arriving from Canada in 1995.

Rick McIntyre served with the National Park Service for 42 years. He has studied wolves for more than 40 years and has recorded more wolf sightings than any other person. For one 15-year period, McIntyre rose before dawn every day to observe the Yellowstone wolves he had come to know so well. Now retired, he has spoken about the Yellowstone wolves with news outlets such as 60 Minutes and NPR’s Snap Judgement and is profiled extensively in American Wolf by Nate Blakeslee.

Doors open at 6 p.m. Program begins at 7 p.m.
