John Glowa and Meredith Kellogg of the Maine Wolf Coalition will speak about Maine wolf population recoveries at Merryspring Nature Center on Tuesday, July 29, at noon.

After being absent for more than a century, evidence of wolf populations returning to Maine has been recorded. This program will begin with a history of wolves in Maine including their biology, past range and public attitudes towards the species. Glowa and Kellogg will then describe the efforts by wolves and the Maine Wolf Coalition to return these animals to Maine, as well as the hindrances wolves face from becoming re-established in the state.

Glowa founded the Maine Wolf Coalition in 1994. He has a Masters of Public Administration from the University of Maine. Kellogg serves as the group’s education and outreach coordinator, and has a BA in environmental writing from Unity College.

This talk is part of the Summer lecture series at Merryspring, co-sponsored by Jaret & Cohn Real Estate and Camden National Bank. Admission to Tuesday talks is free for Merryspring members, with a nominal fee of $5 for non-members.
