History Speaks at the Mead Wildlife Center

MILLADORE — Why should wolves have a place in Wisconsin? How is the wolf population managed to keep people and animals safe?

Scott Walter of the state Department of Natural Resources will discuss this topic at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 22 at the Mead Wildlife Center, S2148 Highway S in Milladore. This presentation is part of the History Speaks in Your Town series presented by the Marathon County Historical Society and the Continuing Education office of UW-Marathon County.
