“Project Wolf” Film Premiere

The Canisius Ambassadors for Conservation present the premier of “Project Wolf” on Monday, October 1 at 7:00 p.m. in the Regis Room, located in the Student Center.

Follow eight college students as they take on the complex issue of whether wolves should be reintroduced into the state of Colorado. The students listen carefully to experts on both sides of the issue and then directly examine the Rocky Mountain ecological conditions for themselves. Finally, when they present their findings to a vote by children in the next generation of Americans, they get an overwhelmingly affirmative response: Bring wolves back!

Come and decide for yourself. This event is free and open to the public.
