Fighting for the Buffalo – discussion and film – March 26, 7 PM, in Bozeman

By early March, more than 800 of the buffalo living in and around Yellowstone National Park will have been killed. Concerned residents of Bozeman are beginning to organize to stop the slaughter and hazing of these magnificent creatures.

As we organize in Bozeman for the buffalo and other local issues, you are invited to attend a discussion, with Mike Mease of Buffalo Field Campaign, featuring a film documenting recent years in the bison’s struggle. This event will happen Wednesday, March 26, 7 PM, at Montana State University’s Procrastinator Theater (in Linfield 125 – on S. 11th Ave).

Mike Mease is the co-founder of Buffalo Field Campaign, a year round grassroots organization actively in the field trying to document and stop the slaughter of buffalo in and around Yellowstone.

All are welcome to attend, and admission is free.

For those interested, we will be organizing a meeting following the presentation to consider next steps.

For any particular questions, contact Chris Klatt at:

This presentation is being organized by local Bozeman residents with the intention of building a grassroots consensus-based activist organization concerned with environmental, economic and social justice issues in Bozeman and the Gallatin Valley. The possibilities are endless, and all with a heart for justice are encouraged to get involved.

    I have posted notice of this event on my blog. I’m an Environmental Alumni up at MSU-Billings so I will also make flyers and distribute them there. Hopefully some of those folks will help spread the word. I will also try to gather up some money to place a notice in the Gazette. Good luck with this event.

    Hey, that’s awesome! We should have fliers up soon; a draft is ready. We’re just making sure we’re all on the same page with it.

    Perhaps I could get a copy of your “official” flyer to distribute instead of making up my own. Will check back after work.

    Never want to discourage you from making up your own. And, we could post anything you come up with – if it’s electronic – here as well. The more the merrier. That would be so cool if we could have an assortment of flyers for this.

    So, don’t wait if you don’t want to – it’s everyone’s event; yours too. For and with the buffalo. If they can roam, why can’t we roam, too.

    Very excited to have your active support.

    At least I don’t feel so helpless now that I’m doing something. Roaming is good.

    Yes, it is.

    FYI, if you didn’t notice, we’ve posted some flyers. Feel free to download and point others to where these are.

    Hope you had a good turnout for the event. I did use some of your flyers as well as my own to throw around Billings, only it is in a Hallmark card studio program that I couldn’t save in any other format. I also posted an announcement to my car and drove around advertising.
