The Community Library in Ketchum will host a free public presentation by the Wood River Wolf Project next Wednesday, Oct. 30, at 6 p.m.

The lecture will touch upon the project’s work in Blaine County and how it strives to promote coexistence between livestock—especially sheep—and wolves by encouraging shepherds, farmers and ranchers to employ effective nonlethal preventative measures to protect their herds and flocks from predators.

Now in its 11th year, the Wood River Wolf Project has spearheaded a number of initiatives to see its mission fulfilled across the project area—a vast section of land within the Sawtooth National Forest and including portions of the Pioneer, Boulder and Smoky mountains.

Anyone interested in the wolves of the Wood River drainage area can swing by the library next week to learn how the people of the valley might do more to live peacefully alongside these iconic predators.
