CODY, Wyo. — Wyoming Wildlife magazine editor Chris Madson will give a talk Thursday at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West about whether humans are isolated from the natural world by intellectual, moral and spiritual development, or if people are instead tied to the planet by evolution and biology.
Titled "A Part or Apart: Man’s Place in the Natural World, Madson’s program takes place Thursday at 12:15 p.m. in the Center of the West’s Coe Auditorium. Part of the monthly Lunchtime Expedition lecture series of the Center’s Draper Natural History Museum, the presentation is free to the public.
Madson has an master's degree in wildlife ecology from the University of Wisconsin and became the editor of Wyoming Wildlife, the magazine of the Wyoming Game and Fish Department, in 1983. During his tenure, the magazine has won more than 100 national awards for excellence in writing, photography and design.
