One of the most elusive creatures in the mountain west, the wolverine, will get the spotlight on Monday, May 18 during a brown-bag discussion at Glacier National Park.

Spokeswoman Denise Germann said on Wednesday, that even though wolverines are seldom seen by the public, they have been spotted several times in the park recently.

"I was taking to the road crew who is plowing the Going-To-The-Sun Road and they think they've seen the same wolverine a couple of times in the last few weeks," Germann said. "That's kind of cool for them to have that sighting."

Germann said there will be a lunchtime conversation about wolverines in the park headed up by a noted ecologist.

"The luncheon will be held at the community building in West Glacier," she said. "The park's carnivore ecologist, John Waller, will talk about the research that's happened in the park on wolverines, a little bit about what we've found to date, and a bit about wolverines in general."

The Glacier National Park Crown of the Continent Research Learning Center hosts brown-bag lectures throughout the year.  Learn more about the Crown of the Continent Research Learning Center here. The discussion runs from noon to 1 p.m. on Monday, May 18, and there is no charge to attend.
