FCMoD will host a local wildlife biologist for an evening presentation and special film screening on Endangered Species Day on May 17 at 7 p.m.
Local wildlife biologist Travis Livieri will present “The Endangered Black-Footed Ferret: Rescuing a Species from Extinction.” Livieri is the Executive Director of Prairie Wildlife Research, a local nonprofit that works extensively in the field to save the endangered black-footed ferret. Livieri will follow his presentation with a special showing of Return of the Prairie Bandit, a visually stunning 50-minute documentary chronicling the return of black-footed ferrets to the Canadian prairies.
A reception will begin at 7 p.m. and the presentation by Livieri will begin at 7:30 p.m. The screening of Return of the Prairie Bandit will begin immediately after the presentation.
The event is free but pre-registration is required as seating is limited. To reserve seats, please call FCMoD’s Reservation Line at 970-416-2705.
