Chasing a Trace | Wolverine film screening
|Thursday, November 21, 2019||7:00 pm - 8:30 pm||College of the Rockies|
Chasing a Trace follows biologist Mirjam Barrueto into the alpine of the Columbia Mountains as she searches for signs of the wily wolverine. A tenacious scientist and an endurance athlete, Barrueto is the perfect person to track the wide-ranging mammals. Award-winning filmmaker Leanne Allison takes you deep into British Columbia’s mountains and into the world of a federally listed Species of Concern.
This community event will share what it takes to research these notoriously tough animals in BC’s mountains and what we stand to gain by doing so. Wolverines can be difficult to study due to their extraordinary shyness and wide-ranging behaviour, but are key indicators of how our mountain ecosystems are doing.
Doors at 6:30 pm, film at 7 pm. Tickets by donation.
