Event Details

The bison went from being one of the most common large mammals in North America to nearly being hunted to extinction in the 19th century. In his new book Re-Bisoning the West, journalist Kurt Repanshek traces the history of bison from their near extinction to present-day efforts to bring them back to the landscape—and the biological, political, and cultural hurdles confronting these efforts. Join Repanshek and the Wasatch Audubon Society at the Ogden Nature Center for a presentation on the past of this keystone species, and how they’re making a comeback in the United States and bringing important environmental and cultural value with them.

Kurt Repanshek is an award-winning journalist well versed in public lands, wildlife, recreation, environmental, and development issues. After graduating from West Virginia University in 1979, he was hired in 1980 by The Associated Press, initially as a temporary legislative relief staffer, but offered a full-time job late that same year. In 1988, when wildfires swept across Yellowstone National Park and captured the world’s attention, he directed and provided coverage of the fires for The Associated Press. He has a diverse journalistic background, having written about the rich biodiversity that lies within Great Smoky Mountains National Park and launched National Parks Traveler, the world’s top-rated editorially independent website dedicated to daily news and feature coverage of national parks and protected areas.

This event is presented by the Wasatch Audubon Society and Torrey House Press. Torrey House Press is supported in part by Utah Arts and Museums, with funding from the state of Utah and National Endowment for the Arts.
