Portage Route Chapter Winter Speaker Series

Thursday, November 15th from 7-8pm.

Jim Posewitz of Helena has fought for Montana’s wildlife and wild places for more than sixty years. He will be speaking about his long career with the Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks at 7:00 p.m. at the Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center, 4201 Giant Springs Rd. The meeting, sponsored by the Portage Route Chapter, is free and open to the public.

Posewitz created and led the ground-breaking Ecological Services Division that helped protect the Rocky Mountain Front and many other vitally important lands and waters. In one of his major conservation successes, he joined the growing list of Montanans who through the years, stepped up on behalf of Montana’s free-flowing Yellowstone River. He helped establish grassroots conservation organizations and wrote popular books on the North American wildlife conservation model, including the national bestseller “ Beyond Fair Chase”.

He will be autographing his latest book, “My Best Shot”, before and after his talk. In this engaging and inspiring autobiography, Posewitz shows how determined individuals can protect America’s “democracy of the wild.”
