The program iNaturalist will be held at Wildcat State Park from 10 to 11 a.m. in the upper picnic shelter. If you wish you could identify plants, fungi, bugs or birds but want a helping hand this is what you need. Bring your smartphone if you have one. If you can download the free iNaturalist app ahead of time that’s a plus, otherwise we’ll start by loading the app. We’ll explain the basics and then head out to see what we can find. For ages 13 and above without parental consent but all ages are welcome. Those without a phone are welcome to come along to look and learn too. A park admission sticker is required for vehicles entering the park.

The program Wolves will be held at Wildcat State Park at 7 p.m. in the Amphitheater. There is likely no wildlife species that engenders more emotion or controversy among humans than the gray wolf. Scott Walter, Executive Director at the Kickapoo Valley Reserve and former Large Carnivore Specialist with the Wisconsin DNR, will lead attendees through some basic wolf ecology, outline the population dynamics of wolves in Wisconsin, and engage in a discussion of the numerous issues related to wolf management in the state. Like so many issues in our society today, Scott will suggest that the current polarization regarding wolf management is counter-productive, and discuss with attendees how introspection, trust, and respect can move wolf management toward the middle and allow science to point both humans and wolves toward a future of less turbulent coexistence. A park admission sticker is required for vehicles entering the park.
