Dr. Wynn-Grant is part of the National Geographic Live Explorer series at the Mesa Arts Center. She will be speaking on the Secret Life of Bears on Wednesday, February 23, 2022 at 7:30PM. Dr. Wynn-Grant has dedicated her life to ecological research and conservation. She works in the expansive American Prairie Reserve to protect and restore iconic wildlife populations, including North American black and grizzly bears, in a region once known for its great number of wild animals. But when the wild lands of this habitat are crisscrossed by roads, fences, and ranched, how can bears and humans coexist peacefully. Purchase tickets at mesaartscenter.com.
