Ex-Wolfman takes over Yestermorrow

Bob Ferris—a member of the team that went north to capture the last set of wolves reintroduced to Yellowstone National Park—joined Yestermorrow as executive director in September. Ferris, who has worked in the wildlife conservation, environmental protection, and sustainability arenas for a quarter of a century, looks forward to a long and productive stint at Yestermorrow. “Our lifestyles have put an already ailing planet at additional risk. We must change the way we build our homes, design our communities and live our lives. The courses at Yestermorrow help us do just that and do so in a way that makes sustainability and living small on the planet not only a practical necessity but a pleasing and desirable option,” said Ferris.
