Members of the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Commission as well as the public participated in Colorado Parks and Wildlife’s second online educational session related to wolf reintroduction efforts on Thu., May 20, 2021, from 6 – 8 p.m.

The purpose of the educational sessions was to provide the Commission and members of the public with a common understanding of what went into the considerations and the logistics for the reintroduction of wolves into Yellowstone and Central Idaho in the mid-1990s. The presenter shared their real-world experiences about establishing and managing wolves in the Northern Rockies.
