“Tracking the Human Footprint” Conference Recap

We were thrilled to host the Biennial Scientific Conference on the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem in Big Sky, MT earlier this month. This year’s theme was “Tracking the Human Footprint” and focused on the human experience and the role scientific research and communication will play in shaping future management of the GYE.

The conference, as in years past, brought together an impressive group of scientists, students, academics, land managers, and the general public to build relationships and protect treasured public lands for future generations.

A big thank you to all speakers/presenters, attendees, and partners for making the event a great success!
