Field Seminar: Restoring Sierra Nevada Bighorn Sheep (FULL)
September 10, 2021 @ 6:30 pm – September 12, 2021 @ 5:00 pm
This field seminar will discuss the fascinating biology of the federally endangered Sierra Nevada bighorn sheep, their relationships with other mammals (including mountain lions and humans), and their conservation in the field. While there is no guarantee of seeing bighorn sheep, past participants have seen them during all but one of the past 20 years of seminars. John Wehausen has been studying the Sierra Nevada bighorn and working for their conservation since 1974. Please be aware that this seminar involves very strenuous hiking at the 10,000-foot elevation and above. Photo by Andrew Youssef.
