Nashville Speaker Series - Room to Roam

Join us on May 17 to learn about NPCA's efforts to promote safe travel for national park wildlife that cross park borders.

Unlike the millions of human visitors who pass through national park gates every year, wildlife do not know when they cross national park boundaries. Every year bears, bison, elk, pronghorn antelope and many others migrate across borders to reach seasonal habitat on park-adjacent public and private lands. These journeys can be perilous, full of road crossings, ranch and farm fencing, and wildlife management policies that are in need of change.

During this FREE event sponsored by Nature Valley, you’ll learn how NPCA staff work to promote safe passage for wildlife, ensuring migration routes are protected and restored for park wildlife around the country.

The evening’s panelists:

  • Bart Melton, Northern Rockies regional director

  • Jeff Hunter, Southeast regional program manager

  • Alan Spears, cultural resources director
