Event Description

The expedition of Lewis and Clark through what is now Montana during 1805-1806 found a richness of wildlife previously unknown to Europeans who would almost immediately surge west to exploit a seemingly endless abundance of bison, beaver, otter and other species. The stories of Montana by members of the expedition, Canadian explorers from the Hudson’s Bay Company, and readers of the Expeditions journals opened the floodgates for a pattern of settlement and wildlife exploitation the results of which remain evident to the present day. UM professor Dr Kerry Foresman, author of "The Mammals of Montana" will present an illustrated lecture.
