There seems to be little neutral ground when it comes wolves in the West. Most people are either for letting them run wild or for controlling the wild canines by hunting them.

The Utah Environmental Congress, a group that is working to see an "ecologically effective" population of wolves in the state is hosting a lecture — The War Over Wolves — 6:30 p.m. Sept. 8 at the Chase Mill in Tracy Aviary, 589 E. 1300 South.

As part of the team that captured wolves in Canada for reintroduction into Yellowstone National Park and then as a federal investigator of possible wolf kills, Carter Niemeyer has been involved in the issue from the start.

Niemeyer, author of the book "Wolfer, A Memoir," will talk about the history of wolves in the West, their current status and their future.

Admission is $10 at the door.
