Learn about Gray Wolves in California

Gray Wolf_NewsFlash

Kent Laudon, wolf specialist with California Department of Fish and Wildlife will be presenting information on California's Gray Wolf, during a special joint-meeting of the Nevada County Agricultural Advisory Commission and the Nevada County Fish and Wildlife Commission.

The gray wolf (Canis lupus) is a native species that was likely extirpated from California in the 1920's. Nearly a century later the gray wolf is now returning to California on its own by dispersal of individuals from populations in other states.

"This is a unique opportunity to learn about an endangered species who has often traveled in our region," said Nevada County Agricultural Commissioner Chris de Nijs. "Our local Ag Industry and interested residents are invited to learn more about these wolves and how we can live with them."

In the summer of 2018 and 2019, OR-54 (54th collared wolf in Oregon) has traveled widely throughout northeastern California including parts of Lassen, Modoc, Nevada, Plumas, Shasta, Siskiyou and Tehama Counties. OR-54 has logged over 7,646 miles in these two years and Nevada County represents the southernmost known wolf location in the state since wolves returned to California in 2011.

Information presented will include the gray wolf's status as an endangered species, information on California's only known established wolf pack, and tips on living with wolves. This special meeting will be held on December 19, 2019 at 6:00 p.m. in the Board of Supervisor Chambers. For additional information please contact the Nevada County Department of Agriculture, 530-470-2690, AGDept@co.nevada.ca.us.
