Book Event: It’s a (Prairie) Dog’s Life by Theodore G. Manno
October 16, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm$2 - $7.50
A prairie dog town is a busy place. As author and field researcher Theodore Manno explains a prairie dog’s life is full of mischief, romantic trysts, antipredator behavior, fighting, kissing, and infanticide. He vividly recounts the daily ups and downs of prairie dogs as well as his own trials and triumphs while observing these rare rodents in Bryce Canyon National Park with other “Dog Squad” researchers from the vantage point of a nine-foot-tall tower. Over time, they came to know the personalities and social structure of the town’s inhabitants. His presentation provides a full overview of what is currently known about prairie dogs, a species that you may be surprised to learn is threatened with extinction. His book, The Utah Prairie Dog: Life Among the Red Rocks will be available for signing and sale. Call 520-398-2252 to make your reservation today. $7.50 fee includes admission to tour the Park.
