The public is invited to a free lecture by Wayne Regelin on the “History of Wolf Management in Alaska” at the upcoming Wildlife Wednesday event beginning at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 23 in the Glacier View Room (Egan 221) at the University of Alaska Southeast.
Regelin began working for the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, Division of Wildlife Conservation, in 1982 as Regional Research Coordinator for the northern part of the state, according to a release from the Alaska Wildlife Alliance. 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 2006.
Regelin will also be signing his new book titled “Fish, Politics, and Wolf Wars, a History of Fish and Game Management in Alaska.” The book will be sold at the event.
“Wildlife Wednesdays” are free, and the public is most welcome to attend. Sponsored by the Alaska Wildlife Alliance, attendees can sip complimentary Heritage Coffee, hot tea, and sample homemade sweets.
