Discussion featuring Charles Post & Max Lowe

Charles Post is an ecologist, storyteller and filmmaker drawn to stories anchored to the confluence of society’s relationship with wild and rapidly changing natural environments. After spending nearly a decade studying at U.C. Berkeley, Charles earned a B.S. and Master’s degree in ecology under the mentorship of Dr. Mary Power, which set him on a course to combine science, conservation and storytelling.Drawn to wildlife and conservation stories of the American West, Charles has traveled from the heart of the Nevada desert to explore the ecological and political state of wild horses on public lands, to South Texas to tell a story about the ecological service hunting whitetail deer can provide a landscape devoid of apex predators, and the plains of Colorado to tell a story of the Ranchlands, a 4th generation ranching family shaping the future of range management in the West. Charles calls Montana home.
