National Geographic Mule Deer Migration Photo Exhibit

Join Wyoming Migration Initiative researchers Matt Kaufman and Hall Sawyer, along with National Geographic photographer Joe Riis, to hear a detailed account of how they recently discovered the longest mule deer migration ever recorded, where animals uniquely migrate 150 miles through western Wyoming from low-elevation winter ranges in the Red Desert to the high mountain slopes surrounding the Hoback Basin. The presentation will share relevant information on focus management and conservation efforts with a reception to welcome the National Geographic Mule Deer Migration Photo Exhibit premiering at the Museum of the Mountain Man September 19 thru October 31, 2014.
