Yellowstone to Uintas Connection - Conserving Wildlife Corridors

Wasatch Packtivists hosts a presentation from Yellowstone to Uintas Connection, a nonprofit conservation group working to protect and restore the unique and irreplaceable wildlife corridor in Idaho, Utah and Wyoming that connects the Yellowstone Ecosystem to the Uinta Wilderness and Southern Rockies. Our underfunded and understaffed public land management agencies, the Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, and State agencies are not restoring these degraded lands, wildlife populations and native plant communities, but are continuing unsustainable management without adequate science, regulation, monitoring or accountability. Much of Y2U Connection work is driven by the current actions of these agencies. Join us to learn about the current projects that Yellowstone to Uintas Connection is working on in this corridor.
