Dinner Conversation Topic

Hello Charger Parents and Students,

As a possible dinnertime conversation tonight, I encourage our students to ask our parents what impact they think re-introducing wolves had on the Yellowstone National Park ecosystem.  Hopefully, our students can explain what actually happened in their own words.  You may then want to watch a short 4-minute youtube.com video called, “How Wolves Change Rivers.”  Feel free to share any conversations with me you found interesting.
