BBCW Talk: Human access at grizzly bear moth feeding sites
Join us for our February Lunchtime Expedition, Human access at grizzly bear moth feeding sites on the Shoshone National Forest, presented by Wildlife Biologist Andrew (Andy) Pils. The in-person talk takes place in the Center’s Coe Auditorium, with a virtual option available.
Army cutworm moth aggregation sites are an important food source for the Greater Yellowstone grizzly bear population. In collaboration with Montana State University, the Forest Service initiated a graduate study to investigate this topic in 2017. Results will directly inform the development of a moth site management plan for the Shoshone National Forest over the next several years.
