Events and Calendar for Breckenridge and Dillon
Spend a family-friendly evening with wolves, as we view 4 short films, including 2 animated shorts, that explore the myths, reality and benefits of wolves – and help answer the question … What if wolves came back to Colorado?
Our feature film, “Living With Wolves”, follows Jim and Jamie Dutcher’s extraordinary experiences living with the Sawtooth Wolf Pack for six years. Exclusive footage in this Emmy-nominated film reveals the innermost details of pack life, and how these elusive, intelligent and powerful creatures interact with man. The evening’s films are free of charge ($5 donation suggested to help defray costs), and there will be free refreshments and an opportunity to meet local Sierra Club members in the campus lobby starting at 6:15 pm. And during a brief intermission, Delia Malone, Wildlife Chair of the Colorado Sierra Club, will be on-hand to answer your questions about wolves and how they work within their ecosystem!
