Currently on a book and lecture tour in California and Oregon, Greene will be in Mariposa Thursday, March 8, to present a slide talk, “Wild Boars and Feral Hogs on the World Stage” at the monthly meeting of the Yosemite Area Audubon Society.  His presentation is scheduled at 7 p.m. at the Mariposa Methodist Church parish hall on Sixth Street in downtown Mariposa.
