    Jon Young on Education and Nature Connection for the Wolf OR-7 Expedition

    Surrounded by wild nature, it doesn’t take long for something to shift inside me. It’s as if the cares of society become hushed, and my senses expand into the present moment. It feels good, and it’s addictive. It’s why despite mosquitoes, rattlesnakes, or freezing temperatures I return time after time to camp, sit or walk […]
  • Reflection: Wolves in the 21st Century

    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 […]

    Wildlife Tracking as a Tool for Wild Peace

    Rollercoaster of Smells (AUDIO)

    A brief profile of smells as told by a human along the route of Wolf OR-7. Cycling and walking from high elevation fir forests, down through dense pines packed with spring flowers and further down into sagebrush deserts affords a rich palette of smells, even for the dinky human nose as compared to a wolf’s […]
  • Wolf Pups!

    Wolf Pups!

    The news that Wolf OR-7 is the father of the first wolf pack in southern Oregon in over 60 years, to me speaks to the very real possibility that within my lifetime we may see wolves as far west as the Pacific Coast. My hope is that Wolf OR-7’s new pack may spark conversations about […]
  • It All Began with a Collar

    It All Began with a Collar

    Our expedition, and all that we know about Wolf OR-7, stems from the GPS collar that Wolf OR-7 was fitted with one cold day in February of 2011. The day was 13 below zero, recounts Russ Morgan, the Wolf Program Coordinator for Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) in an interview with the Wolf […]
