Ever wonder what those people in the Calgary Zoo trucks are up to every day in Grasslands National park? Are you curious why anyone would spend a whole summer chasing prairie dogs around? Or ask yourself: “Who the heck is that standing on a ladder out in the prairie”? Come to Prairie Wind and Silver Sage August 25 at 7:30 pm to get the answers to those questions, and more!
Come out to hear the Calgary Zoo field crew discuss their research in Grasslands this summer, the history of the Canadian Prairie Dog Ecosystem Research Project over the last ten years, and how Parks Canada and the Calgary Zoo have worked together to help understand black-footed ferrets and black-tailed prairie dogs in Canada.
