Coming Soon: The Cougar Comes to the East

Friday, March 16, 2018 -
7:00pm to 9:00pm
The Fells Gatehouse, 456 Route 103, Newberry, NH 03255

There is no question about it. Cougars are not only being seen in eastern North America, some are attempting to recolonize their former habitats.  Where once it was flatly dismissed as an impossibility in the so-called “developed” east, scientists have now documented cougar dispersals and even occupancy in a growing list of eastern states and provinces.  Join us for a magnificently illustrated introduction to cougar biology and ecology in the broad diversity of habitats where Sue has studied them, from Alberta to the Arizona/Mexico border.  We will also get the low-down regarding the latest confirmations of cougars in the east, including the recently documented suitability of a substantial amount of wild habitats from Manitoba to Louisiana and Maine to Georgia.  It is only a matter of time!

Sue will also lead a half-day field workshop called, "Tracking Wildlife by Understanding Habitat" on Saturday, March17th.  The field workshop will start at 9:00 a.m. and end at Noon.  To attend, meet at the Fells Gatehouse at 9:00 a.m.
