Wyoming Wild Sheep Foundation Director Katie Cheesbrough will also join in to share updates on the latest sheep habitat conservation initiatives. Ellen Incelli, Jackson Hole Land Trust’s conservation project coordinator will wrap up the hour by discussing the work of the Wind River Program and the importance of protected private land in Northwest Wyoming. Attend this virtual happy hour to learn more about this majestic mountain animal, diseases that affect bighorns, and historic and current research.
