Episode #27: Mackenzie Davis and Karen Sullivan, National Bighorn Sheep Interpretive Center

Karen Sullivan and Mackenzie Davis from the National Bighorn Sheep Interpretive Center join the RadCast Outdoors Podcast crew to talk about bighorn sheep and sheep initiatives across the world.

In this podcast, Karen, Mackenzie and the RadCast crew discuss topics including sheep preservation, educating the public, touring the Center, challenges that both the Center and the herds face, volunteer efforts and ways to get involved.

The National Bighorn Sheep Interpretive Center, the only bighorn sheep center in the world, is located in Dubois, Wyoming. The surrounding lands of Dubois are home to the largest wintering Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep herd in North America.

The Bighorn Sheep Center works with other organizations to employ strategies such as disease research, population monitoring, habitat enhancement projects, wild sheep relocation and efforts to reduce wild and domestic sheep interactions.

The mission of the National Bighorn Sheep Interpretive Center is to educate the public about wild sheep, wild lands and conservation. From guided tours to school presentations, the Center teaches people of all ages about bighorn sheep. Some of their most popular tours and programs include the Annual Mystery Sheep Trap Trek, Camp Bighorn and the Wind River Photographers’ Retreat.

The Center is continually expanding its educational programs for kids, featured guest speakers and webinar series. It offers multiple opportunities for tours and treks throughout the year.
