    Wolf OR-7 Story Map

    We’ve illustrated a map of Wolf OR-7’s generalized dispersal to depict the remarkable story of an actual wolf living in the 21st Century. Alongside the illustrated map, we’ve included details about his life and relatives, the history of wolves in the USA, basic wolf ecology, and more. We illustrated the map with schools in mind. If you know of […]

    Encounter: Ramon Alonso, Lifelong Hunter

    Ramon grew in Springfield, Oregon and has been hunting and fishing with his brother since he was a teenager. He trains year round, running for miles to stay fit enough to spend the hunting season tracking elk, bear and deer in Oregon’s wild areas. Ramon met us at the Northwest Outward Bound School in Redmond, […]

    The Story of Wolf B-300: Mother of Wolf OR-7 & Oregon’s First Wolf Resident

    Our expedition’s central character, Oregon’s famous wandering Wolf OR-7, was not the first of his lineage to have an epic tale of interstate dispersal. Before Wolf OR-7, the story of wolves returning to Oregon featured his mother, a female wolf known as B-300. She was born in central Idaho to the Timberline pack, descendants of the gray wolves translocated […]

    Reflection: Wolves in the 21st Century

    The Wolf OR-7 Expedition team retraced Wolf OR-7’s dispersal route from NE Oregon into California to explore the challenges facing a wolf in the 21st century. As part of the team, I walked and cycled across mountain wilderness, public rangelands and busy highways and wondered how the region has changed since my great, great grandfather […]
  • Lassen County and the Sojourns of Wolf OR-7

    Lassen County and the Sojourns of Wolf OR-7

    For a number of months in 2012 Wolf OR-7 called the open fields and lava beds of Lassen County home. During his stay he moved extensively amongst cow fields and forest cover, drawing huge circles on the map that tracked his GPS position. We entered Lassen County on a hot Sunday afternoon, cycling through small […]

    Bordering Home

    Riding west towards Iron Gate Reservoir on the Klamath River along the CA / OR border, Dave Moskowitz stopped us mid-track and asked which side of the border we thought we were on. I really couldn’t say, there was no difference between the dry oak savannah to the South and the dry oak savannah to […]
  • Wolf Country

    Wolf Country

    It has been two weeks (forever) since we saw wolf tracks in the snow of the Wallowa Mountains. From that point onward, part of me has lamented every mile walked and bicycled as they took us further and further from any known area of wolf activity. Here we are, a wolf expedition quickly moving away […]

    Base Camp: Northwest Outward Bound

    “The truth is that in one important sense, adventure, however much it may be concerned with physical conflict and danger, is really of the mind. What is an adventure to some, may be, to others of more prosaic nature, an ordeal, or an imposition, or a nuisance, or a calamity, or even simply a bore. […]
