Dorothy and her pals may have been terrified of this trio, but here in the Pacific Northwest, we must guard against a ferocious foursome of carnivores. Or must we?
Lorna and Darrell Smith, wildlife biologists with the Western Wildlife Outreach will give a talk on how cultural bias against black bears, grizzlies, cougars and gray wolves hinders us from understanding these carnivores’ roles in our ecosystem. Covering the basic biology and current population status of these mammals, the Smiths, will teach how to safely live and recreate in bear/wolf/cougar country.
