Birds, butterflies, beaver and antelope, wildflowers and frogs — could their survival possibly be connected to top predators like the wolf and cougar? For those who have seldom given thought to the great predators so often missing from the web of life, here is a world of reason to think again. Following in the footsteps of wolves and cougars, and the scientists working to understand their place in the rapidly changing world of nature, award-winning filmmakers Karen and Ralf Meyer of Green Fire Productions have captured the predators’ ongoing drama in their documentary, Lords of Nature: Life in a Land of Great Predators.
Narrated by Peter Coyote, Lords of Nature journeys to the heart of predator country: the Yellowstone plateau; the canyons of Zion; the farm country of northern Minnesota and the rugged open range of central Idaho – all places now resettled by the great beasts society once banished. Here scientists discover these top carnivores as revitalizing forces of nature, keystone species whose presence in sufficient numbers can dramatically reverse the slow decay of America’s wild West.
This is an acclaimed film which you won’t want to miss! Afterward we’ll hear reactions and comments from our panel of experts and then dive into a Q&A. Where: The Environmental Center, 16 NW Kansas, Bend – 6:30 social, 7:00 program begins. $3 suggested donation. DVD’s will be available for $20. Email Gretchen Valido at gretchen.valido@oregon.sierraclub.org to reserve your copy early; limited supply.
