  • December 7, 7 pm – 8 pm
    Wildlife Wednesdays: Dall Sheep in the Chugach
    Matanuska Experiment Farm in Palmer. With Tom Lohuis of ADF&G. Dall sheep inhabit some of the most extreme and rugged terrain in Alaska, including alpine ridges and steep slopes. The remoteness of sheep habitat protects them from threats, and yet Dall sheep populations in the Chugach have declined over the last 20-25 years. Tom Lohuis, sheep research biologist, will share his research investigating the potential causes for this decline, discuss what the Alaska Department of Fish and Game has planned for the future, and consider what this might mean for sheep populations in Southcentral Alaska. For more information, email .
