The Wolverine Way

Wolverine habitat in the Salmo Priest Wilderness

Chances are you haven’t had the opportunity to observe wolverines in the wild and learn their ways first hand.  Wolverines are one of the most elusive animals in North America, preferring remote and wild terrain away from people.  Yet there are still a few of these tough, wide-ranging carnivores known to pass through the Columbia Highlands, including the Selkirk Mountains, where there are still some large expanses of wild lands and high peaks that make for excellent wolverine habitat. 

If you’ve always wanted to learn more about these amazing creatures, then don’t miss author Doug Chadwick’s visit to Spokane on Monday, Jan 24 from 7-9PM a the Wolfe Auditorium on the Gonzaga University campus, for a free talk about his new book, The Wolverine Way.  Chadwick’s book includes rare photos and accounts of his experiences tracking wolverines in Glacier National Park.  His talk will cover new information about wolverine habitat, social structure, and reproduction habits.  Chadwick is a Spokane native who has published several books on wildlife and is a frequent contributor to National Geographic Magazine.  The talk is sponsored by the Spokane Mountaineers and Gonzaga Outdoors.
