For the first time in more than a decade, hundreds of people are joined at the DECC to explore the interaction between humans and wolves.
The 2013 International Wolf Symposium is drawing experts from around the world. This year's conference is called "Wolves and Humans at the Crossroads."
The International Wolf Center in Ely said the timing couldn't be better because of the ongoing debate over wolf hunting in the Midwest. They want the conference to help people determine where they stand on the issue.
Tom Myrick, the center's communications director, said "there may be personal decisions made by interactions with other people and we hope that happens. We hope people exchange ideas."
No decisions about future hunts are made at the symposium. But some tense dialogue is expected Saturday during a session about hunting and trapping. That begins at 10:30 a.m. and it's free.
