OK, the actual wolverines won’t be at the Community House. But you can learn more about them there.

Southborough Open Land Foundation will be hosting a special presentation about “one of the most challenging pieces of wildlife research ever undertaken in the US”:

Wolverines
Presented by Rebecca Watters
Southborough Community House
28 Main Street, Southborough, MA
April 16, 2015, 7:30 PM.


Southborough native Rebecca Watters was a member of a 2013 five-person National Geographic sponsored cross country skiing expedition in search of wolverines across 230 miles of the remote mountains of Mongolia. Wolverines live in cold, remote regions, and studying them has proven to be one of the most challenging pieces of wildlife research ever undertaken in the US.

Her talk will explore the biology and ecology of wolverines, the critical questions of how to conserve climate sensitive wildlife, and the adventures on skis, foot, and horseback that go with research efforts on a high-elevation species on two continents.

This program is presented by the Southborough Open Land Foundation (SOLF) with the support of a grant from the Southborough Community Fund The program is free and open to the public. For more information, visit www.solf.org.
