Friday Morning Panel

“Deer vs. Development”
Wildlife conservation in the face of the New West’s housing surge

Marcus Strange, Urban to Country Podcast / 2% Committee Member



We’ve all heard it: Bozeman is supposed to be the size of Salt Lake City and Jackson the size of Denver… just in the next few decades.

People are flocking to the west for opportunities, but also for a connection with nature. Nature that may be extirpated by the flood of humans to the region and our propensity to build parking lots and condos on their habitat.

How do we keep what we all live here to enjoy? Is it possible to avoid loving the outdoors to death?

Format: 60 minutes panel discussion, 60 minutes roundtable-breakout Q&A
