Kurt Repanshek | Re-Bisoning the West: Restoring an American Icon to the Landscape

This event is free and open to the public and will take place at the Tracy Aviary at 589 E 1300 S, Salt Lake City, UT 84105.

Kurt Repanshek will read from and sign his new nonfiction book, Re-Bisoning the West: Restoring an American Icon to the Landscape

In Re-Bisoning the West, 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. Repanshek explores Native Americans’ relationships with bison and presents a forward-thinking approach to returning bison to the West and improving the health of ecosystems. This event is presented by Great Salt Lake Audubon.
