Grizzly 399! Living on the Wild Edge with the Most Famous Mother Bear in the World

A fireside presentation with writer Todd Wilkinson

Not far from Big Sky, in the northern reaches of Jackson Hole, lives the most celebrated grizzly on earth. The life of mother grizzly 399 symbolizes that dramatic struggle involved with bringing back an imperiled bear population in the modern world. With millions of admirers, this matriarch who has 17 offspring in her bloodline, has survived harrowing life and death encounters. Her story is not only a remarkable tale of conservation but a reminder of what’s at stake for grizzlies prowling the backcountry near Big Sky. Writer Todd Wilkinson will discuss her history and use photos by renowned photographer Thomas Mangelsen with whom he collaborated on the award-winning book, “Grizzlies of Pilgrim Creek: The Story of Grizzly 399, the Most Famous Bear in the World.”
