WYOMING \u2013 It\u2019s fall and animals are on the move. Where are they all going and why? At Buckrail, we can\u2019t stop studying informative maps put out by the Wyoming Migration Initiative (some of them using ancient data) that show where deer, elk, and antelope disperse every autumn to find more hospitable winters.\r\n\r\nIn the spring, ungulates \u201csurf the green wave,\u201d moving and munching with new growth into the high country.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nNow, in fall, elk have mostly traded their longer, historic migration to more southern climes like the Red Desert for a shorter run to the grocery store at one of the more than 20 feedgrounds in and around the Jackson Hole region.\r\n\r\nMule deer and pronghorn still hoof it quite a ways\u2014most headed down the Hoback Canyon for the Pinedale\/Rock Springs region.\r\n\r\nWyoming Migration Initiative is a Wyoming-based collaborative of biologists, photographers, mapmakers, and writers working to research ungulate migration. Their mission is to\u00a0advance understanding, appreciation, and conservation of Wyoming's migratory ungulates by conducting innovative research and sharing scientific information through public outreach.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nFor those who can make it:\r\n\r\nSheridan Stationery, Books and Gallery will host a book signing with Joe Riis and Emiline Ostlind on Saturday from 11am to 1pm.\r\n\r\nRiis is a National Geographic contributing photographer and photography fellow at the Wyoming Migration Initiative. He has been working in the Greater Yellowstone area since early 2008, focusing primarily on wildlife migration.\r\n\r\nHe and Ostlind will sign copies of the book \u201cGreater Yellowstone Migrations\u201d at the downtown bookstore.
