Of Bears and Moths

Date / Time: April 7, 2021 6:30 pm

Please join Swan Valley Connections for a presentation with Erik Peterson, a wildlife biologist with Washington State University. Peterson’s current work explores the relationship between grizzlies and army cutworm moths in the Crown of the Continent. These small insects play a huge role as nourishing “bear butter,” and Peterson’s research is advancing knowledge about how grizzlies are adapting to shifts in key foods, growing pressures from mountain recreation, and a rapidly changing climate.
