The Alaska Wildlife Alliance’s January “Wildlife Wednesday” event will feature “The History of Wolf Management in Alaska” presented by Wayne Regelin. Regelin will also be signing his new book called “Fish, Politics, and Wolf Wars: a History of Fish and Game Management in Alaska,” and the book will be sold at the event.
Regelin began working for the Alaska Department of Fish and Game’s Division of Wildlife Conservation in 1982 as Regional Research Coordinator for the northern part of the state. He later served as deputy director for six years and as director of the division for eight years. In 2002, he was appointed deputy commissioner for the department and served in this position until he retired in December 2006.
This “Wildlife Wednesday” will take place at 7 p.m. on Jan. 23 in the UAS Glacier View Room (Egan 221), right above the Egan Lecture Hall and just down the hall from the Egan Library.
“Wildlife Wednesdays” are free, and the public is welcome. Complimentary Heritage Coffee, hot tea, and homemade sweets will be served.
the next Wildlife Wednesday will be “Peregrinations in Nature Around Juneau” led by photographer Kerry Howard on Feb. 20. In March, Tennie Bentz and Ryan Scott will present “Bear Education in Juneau: Why does it matter?”
