The monthly speaker series Wildlife Wednesdays starts today with a discussion of the role of Alaska State Wildlife Troopers in enforcing wildlife management law.
Wildlife Trooper Matthew Dobson will give a talk at the University of Alaska Southeast’s Egan Lecture Hall over the role of troopers in wildlife management. The hourlong free talk starts at 7 p.m. Refreshments will be served.
Dobson’s talk kicks off the Wildlife Wednesday season. On the first Wednesday of every month from October to March, environmental nonprofit advocacy group Alaska Wildlife Alliance hosts Wildlife Wednesdays.
